Los ciudadanos comunes y la desertificación

Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN-PR)'s picture

Por: Amy Orta

Un desierto, un día de altas temperaturas y dónde la lluvia es escasa, fue la primera imagen que tuve cuando supe que el término “desertificación” existía. Aunque la palabra desertificación es un proceso mucho más complejo de lo yo acabo de describir, cuando escuchamos el término “desertificación” sí debemos pensar en cómo nuestras actividades pueden crear unos procesos donde se ve afectado al terreno y todo lo que depende él.

Puerto Rico Means Science

Mónica Ivelisse Feliú-Mójer's picture

Below is a transcript of my speech for March for Science Puerto Rico, held April 22, 2017.

Good morning! Are we ready to march?

My name is Mónica Feliú-Mójer, deputy director of CienciaPR. CienciaPR uses the collective knowledge of the world's largest network of Puerto Rican scientists to share science in rice and beans, to improve science education in Puerto Rico and to forge the next generations of Puerto Rican scientific leaders.

I am in love with #cienciaboricua

Heidi D. Morales Díaz's picture

I am in love. In love with all lovers of science, scientists and citizens who were present and marched in the heat, under the Caribbean sun and expressed their love, dedication, and support for Puerto Rican science (#CienciaBoricua). We estimate some 600-700 marchers joined us. Today I thank you all. Thank you!! This is for you!

Thanks to the science teachers who dedicate themselves every day to introducing science to children and young people, those who helped us take the first step for the sake of science. Thanks to the parents who included their children in this historic event so that one day they can say I was there, I was part of that.

Neuroscience Symposium: Innovative Technologies and Learning

Juan Víctor Concepción Cardona's picture

The idea for the Neuroscience Symposium: Innovation, Technology, and Learning was conceived in 2014 when doctoral student Juan V. Concepcion Cardona and Dr. Joel Acevedo Nieto met at the Network of Entrepreneurship Innovation in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico. Juan and Joel discussed possibilities for a holding a meeting about the emergence of Neuroscience in Puerto Rico. Both scientists felt that there is a need to better understand and track the development of neuroscience research and practice in Puerto Rico. As an academic discipline, neuroscience is challenging as it is composed of various sub-disciplines like neurobiology, psychology, cognitive sciences, computer sciences, etc.

Durante el pasado jueves y viernes 16 y 17 de febrero, se celebró en las facilidades de la Universidad Interamericana de Bayamón el Duodecimo Simposio sobre Asuntos Relacionados a Agua Potable. El mismo fue auspiciado por el Centro de Educación, Conservación e Interpretación Ambiental (CECIA) de la Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico (UIPR) y la Agencia de Protección Ambiental (US EPA por sus siglas en Inglés). Durante el simposio se examinó la perspectiva local e internacional sobre el estado de nuestros recursos de agua, la evolución de las reglamentaciones y la ciencia que establecen los tratamientos para agua potable y su impacto en la salud pública tanto en la Isla, como desde la perspectiva global.

Wilson Javier Gonzalez-Espada's picture

It had been almost a year of planning my research and teaching duties for my visit to Montevideo Uruguay, as part of a Fulbright Fellowship. This international exchange program of teachers, faculty, students and other professionals was started after the end of World War II by Senator J. William Fulbright to foster understanding and tolerance among nations.

SEDS UPRM Observation & Planetarium Night

Angelic Marie Arzola Roig's picture

     Early sky watchers used to enjoy and monitor our sky for celestial objects and phenomena, even with their lack of sophisticated instruments. Somehow, they managed to understand and develop the ideas that would set the basis for modern astronomy. Nowadays, when the concepts “space,” “astronauts,” or even “NASA” are used the first thoughts coming to mind may be those related to science, engineering, or technology. Yet, the truth is that the study of space is much more than just traditional subjects like Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); it entails achieving new and innovative ways of thinking about our universe, thus leading to a new and an avant-garde way of perceiving all of our surroundings.
