As the esposo of a latina scientist, I support Ciencia PR and the work that it does to advance STEM training and opportunities for future generations. I have a keen interest in helping contribute to greater opportunities for scientists on the island, with the aim of enriching the economy and reinforcing scientific values among the next generation of scientists.
