Broader Impacts

CIRE2N students seek to visit K-12 schools to give interactive presentations and thus create an interest in the STEM fields in children and teens. In addition, CIRE2N seeks to impact the community of Cataño by creating an interactive and educational space within the school, where children can learn about environmental science and nanotechnology. During the summer the program offers a summer camp in which student-teacher pairs participate. During this camp both receive training and mentoring to create a research proposal and then continue with it during the semester of classes and implement new activities related to their subject.
