The Brain Awareness week (BAW) is celebrated during March 10-16 worldwide. As part of our commitment to promote science and research in Puerto Rico, this year Ciencia Puerto Rico is inviting scientists to submit and publish articles related to neuroscience topics.

Science, like love, should be celebrated everyday…

Are you passionate about science? Do you recognize its importance in our society? Science is all around us... in what is detected by your senses and what is not. Likewise, love as defined by humans, is everywhere and in all moments. So, why choose one day to celebrate them? If we can do it every day! Here, our volunteer team and constributors share some reasons to love science and celebrate it all year. What is yours?

Happy holidays and a wonderful new year!

Dear friends of CienciaPR, 

The holidays are a great time to give thanks for all the beautiful things in life and to share goodwill with family members and friends.

Transformational Opportunities, YOU CAN DO IT!

Marvi Ann Matos's picture

When talking to scientists in industry and academia, I always ask: “How is it that you got involved in Research? What inspired you to follow a path as a Scientist? When did you decide that you would continue a PhD?”  While an interest in Science and Math typically starts early on in school and prior to college, the passion that propels many of these individuals to pursue a PhD stems from transformational research opportunities. Many times, the answers to all my questions converge into: “it was that summer research opportunity that inspired me to dream higher”. My life as an engineer and scientist and my motivation were not different.

Care about the future of science? Be visible.

‘I am the girl that tweeted you’.

Elena found me on Twitter.  “I need your help,” she wrote.  I gave her my email.

Elena is an 8th grade student in Puerto Rico and her teacher had assigned students to profile a Puerto Rican scientist for a special project.  “You,” she wrote, “are my scientist.”

Why women leave science, you ask? THIS. This is why.
