We are facing a pandemic of the new Sar-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes the respiratory disease COVID-19. The situation has disrupted everyone's lives in unprecedented ways. We understand that there is much concern and uncertainty, and that the situation is constantly and rapidly evolving. That is why the CienciaPR Team has activated its #CienciaBoricua community to educate, inform, and promote the well-being of our people. As always, in this emergency, we are ready to put science in service of Puerto Rico.

A coalition of scientists from Puerto Rico and the diaspora has launched a call asking the United States government to take into account the opinions of the Puerto Rican scientific community when planning and designing the replacement of the Arecibo Observatory and to make a real financial commitment for its construction. In a letter, the group elaborates on the scientific and educational value that the Arecibo Observatory fulfilled for many years. Among the requests, the group demands that the next project reflect the latest technological advances, preserves and enhances the educational mission that was developed in Arecibo, and has sufficient scientific personnel.

Ciencia Puerto Rico joins the COVID-19 Wisdom Coalition (COSACO), the Citizen Health Committee (CCS), Vistazo a la Ciencia, Periódico Nuestro, and Mentes Puertorriqueñas en Acción (MPA) to urgently ask the mayor of San Juan, the Hon. Carmen Yulín Cruz to take immediate action to integrate the municipality of San Juan into the Municipal System for Case Investigation and Contact Tracking (SMICRC).

Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) was one of a dozen non-profit organizations from all over the United States who participated of NBCUniversal’s (NBCU) Summer of Service, an initiative that connects NBCU employees with organizations for pro bono consulting to enable them to achieve their organizational goals.

Over two weeks, a team of NBCU employees (Monique Joe, Linette Sifre, Andrea Ruiz and Kieran Bertram) developed several communications and marketing tools and strategies for our organization. The positioning statement, social media plan, templates, marketing plan and timeline (among other resources) created by them will help CienciaPR communicate our work, value, and impact better and do more with limited resources and bandwidth.
