For the sixth consecutive year, the student chapter of the Meteorological Society of Puerto Rico (SMPR) of the University of Puerto Rico's Mayagüez Campus (UPR-M), conducted the Weather Fest, an event that brought together middle and high school students with the mission of creating an interest in the discipline that explores the atmosphere.
Zuleimary Rodriguez Velez, vice president and lead organizer of the group, explained that the initiative, which was coordinated by students assigned to the UPR-M Meteorology curriculum, receives 600 to 700 students annually.
