The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Educator Award publicly celebrates high school educators who encourage girls’ interest and participation in technology pursuits. Educator Award recipients form a national community of peers, share practices, and empower other educators to encourage the participation of girls in computing.
Each year, a great number of Puerto Rican scientists are distinguished with prestigious prizes and awards. In Puerto Rico, the United States and in many parts of the world, Puerto Rican scientific talent makes itself known. Being the only network of Puerto Rican scientists in the world, it is our job to celebrate the achievements and recognitions of the members of our community.
Thus, it is with great pleasure that we announce the re-activation of our "Cerebros Boricuas" (“Puerto Rican brains”) blog.
Our intention with this blog is to recognize the accomplishments of CienciaPR members. Our goal: to promote and celebrate the Puerto Rican scientific talent, motivating current and future generations of scientists.

The answer to many of the environmental, health, social and economic challenges faced by modern society lay in the advancement of science, engineering and innovation. Thus, scientists and engineers must play a role in making science accessible to the public they aim to help with their discoveries.
