It is said that opportunity favors the prepared. I know this is true because a golden opportunity to use my science background to benefit Puerto Rico knocked on my door and I was not ready.

The March was only the beginning

The March for Science Puerto Rico was a historic day. However, Earth Day 2017 was not the end, but the beginning of our work. We need your help to continue celebrating, advocating and defending science in Puerto Rico and around the world.

In the coming weeks we will be sharing actions that you can take to continue advancing the goals of the March for Science Puerto Rico.

Under the Caribbean sun and embraced a cool sea breeze, on April 22, 2017, over 600 scientists, students and citizens marched for science. It was a historic day for Puerto Rican science. Young and old flooded the streets of historic Old San Juan to celebrate #cienciaboricua, to demand policies based on evidence and informed by the local scientific community. We joined 600+ cities around the world to #MarchForScience.

Science will not thank you: volunteer anecdote

Reyna I. Martínez De Luna's picture

“Doing science” is to generate knowledge. The process of generating knowledge does not involve any feelings nor does it allow you to know if your findings have any value or not.

This is because science is a human and social process.  The people who give value to the new knowledge generated are the scientists themselves who are people just like you and me.

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.

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.
