To successfully implement our new strategic direction of transforming science education to promote a culture of science, critical thinking and problem-solving in Puerto Rico, besides creating a Board of Directors composed of internationally-recognized leaders in science, education and civic society, CienciaPR needed to hire a new staff member in Puerto Rico.

Under our new strategic direction, one of CienciaPR’s goals is to grow our infrastructure, human and financial resources to make CienciaPR a sustainable nonprofit organization. To achieve this, one of our first objectives was to put together a Board of Directors composed by leading scientists, educators, innovators and members of the community that could complement our existing expertise, help us secure new sources of funding, and increase the visibility, recognition and influence of the organization, and overall, help us increase the impact of CienciaPR.
