Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I'm a newly retired Physics & Astronomy teacher in Seattle, Wa. In 2002, I traveled to the South Pole to work on the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. This began a long association with the project which has continued over the last 2 decades. We sent a teacher from Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico Astronomy Society co-founder Armando Caussade, to the Pole a few years ago, and I got in touch with him, and we two started this project in fall of 2018 to see if we could help.
I've incorporated a non-profit called Astronomy Education with Puerto Rico to fundraise in the mainland United States, with the goal of restoring astronomy education capacity in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane María. aewpr.org
