The Agents of Change Empowerment and Retention Program, best known by the Spanish acronym PARACa, is an initiative organized and carried out by the non-profit organization Mentes Puertorriqueñas en Acción (MPA). MPA is composed of students and young professionals aware of the great challenges facing our society both today and the consequences that we could suffer tomorrow. This group of emerging professionals is characterized by recruiting agents of change who are identified by their commitment, leadership and execution at a young age with Puerto Rican society and who are willing to work for the progress and well-being of the country.

A 2016 Full of Achievements

Dear friends,

It is with great pride that we share with you CienciaPR’s first annual report, a compendium of the most significant achievements of our organization in 2016.

The report marks the tenth anniversary of our community, which saw the light of day on January 2006. It has been incredibly inspiring to see how over the last ten years the CienciaPR network has grown, and with it, the number of ideas and projects that place our community of scientists and STEM professionals at the service of the Puerto Rican people.

CienciaPR: From the beginning

Daniel Alfonso Colón-Ramos's picture

Pasteur said that although science has no homeland, scientists do. Since I've been thinking of myself as a scientist, I’ve thought of myself as a Puerto Rican scientist. My concerns about science and Puerto Rico have always gone hand in hand and with them a deep interest and commitment to contribute, through science for the betterment of my country.

Now more than ever...

Like many, the leadership of Ciencia Puerto Rico is concerned by the results of the U.S. presidential election. This period has revealed great divisions and a level of disaffection, both in Puerto Rico and in the United States, which are impossible to ignore. It is no secret that the president-elect has taken anti-science and anti-environment positions.

A dream within a dream

I've had all kinds of dreams when I sleep. Some are very long and strange but others are just funny. Those dreams while I sleep have always been a mystery to me, but are not part of my favorite moments. Daydreaming is what I really enjoy. I like to imagine how things would be if I do something to make them happen. They say, " It costs nothing to dream". I add that "to achieve your dreams is worth everything."
