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.

Last Saturday will stay with me forever. It was September 5th, 2015 and I had traveled to Puerto Rico (3,600+ miles and over 10 hours) for the second workshop of the Semillas de Triunfo (Seeds of Success) STEM Ambassadors Program, in Humacao. This program, created by Ciencia Puerto Rico in collaboration with Yale University and the Amgen Foundation, gives middle school girls the opportunity to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and explore how through these disciplines they can become leaders and agents of change in their communities. The program is near and dear to my heart and me and my colleagues have been working really hard on it (three workshops down, one to go).

San Juan, Puerto Rico. – La organización sin fines de lucro Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR), la Universidad Yale, y la Fundación Amgen darán inicio a la serie de talleres del programa “Semillas de Triunfo” que le brindará la oportunidad a niñas de séptimo a noveno grado de adentrarse al mundo de las  carreras en ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas (STEM, por sus siglas en inglés). Los talleres que comienzan este próximo sábado, 22 de agosto en el Recinto de Ciencias Médicas en San Juan, serán liderados por un grupo de científicas e ingenieras puertorriqueñas destacadas en sus campos profesionales y que buscan inspirar a  una nueva generación de “Niñas Embajadoras en STEM” para beneficio de sus comunidades.
