Ciencia al Servicio "Kit" for STEM educators

As part of its initiative for STEM educators in response to natural disasters, CienciaPR have designed a prototype of an "emergency kit"  for teachers containing accessible and reproducible educational material, with content aligned  to  the Department of Education' of Puerto Rico’s science and math standards (and with the ability to align to other subject standards)  for  elementary, intermediate and higher levels (regular and Montessori), along with guidelines for its implementation. Educational material can be used outside the traditional classroom and does not require the use of electrical power, and/or advanced technology. Materials in each "kit" can cover content for approximately 3-5 months.  

Let's achieve a resilient education!

Natural Disaster Response for STEM Educators in Puerto Rico: How to help?

Greetchen Díaz-Muñoz's picture

When a natural disaster affects the physical structure of classrooms and schools, the continuity of education is typically impacted. Depending on the severity of the disaster, educators and students may spend long periods without teaching or learning. This has been the case for Puerto Rico, an archipelago located in a geographical area vulnerable to climate change, and exposed to storms, hurricanes and seismic activity.

CienciaPR Supports Educational Continuity in Southwestern Puerto Rico

It felt like a birthday party. Children running around and playing on the swings. As soon as they arrived, parents asked for the teacher and made their way towards the home-made banners that corresponded with their kids’ grade to sign them up. When the call for the start of classes rang, the little ones started settling down. We had to add a table because there wasn’t space for everyone. Then there weren’t enough chairs, and some kids shared.

Forging an education at the service of Puerto Rico

We are launching the Educación al Servicio (Education in Service) Blog! To being, we would like to review our CienciaPR initiatives and contributions in the area of STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and how these have evolved to influence the educational environment within and outside the classroom.

Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) and the Puerto Rico Vector Control Unit (PRVCU) teamed-up to train scientists and teachers in the design of project-based learning (PBL) lessons. The collaboration is part of the second year of Ciencia al Servicio de Puerto Rico (Science in Service of Puerto Rico), CienciaPR’s flagship education project. Ciencia al Servicio brings together teachers and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals to co-create lessons that empower students to use scientific inquiry, design and discovery to solve locally relevant problems.

A team composed of educators in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and members of the organization Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) will participate in an event organized by the Smithsonian Education Center and sponsored by Shell Oil Company, on March 22-24, 2019 in New Orleans.

The team that will represent Puerto Rico is formed by members of the educational region of San Juan: leaders Lydia Báez and Marta Oyola, teachers Mildred Vega and Dimarilys Bruno, and by Dr. Greetchen Díaz, Director of Science Education Programs and Community Partnerships for Ciencia Puerto Rico, a non-profit organization that brings together 10,000 professionals and STEM educators with the mission of democratizing and transforming scientific education.

SAN JUAN, PR — This coming November 27, Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) will participate—for the second year in a row—of #GivingTuesday, a global movement through which millions of people, organizations and companies support causes in which they believe. The non-profit organization will be raising funds to support its educational project "Ciencia al Servicio de Puerto Rico” (Science in Service of Puerto Rico), which seeks to transform how science is taught in local schools.
