El pasado viernes 6 de marzo se llevó a cabo el Simposio: El poder de la mujer en la ciencia dedicado a destacar el trabajo, los retos, y logros de la mujer dentro de diferentes campos de la ciencia. Esta actividad se presentó en el anfiteatro número uno de la Facultad de estudios generales de la UPRRP y fue organizada por un equipo de mujeres científicas del departamento de química de la facultad de ciencias naturales. Estudiantes de escuelas invitadas tuvieron la oportunidad [...]
There are a lot of things an individual must do before interviewing a scientist. Here, I'm going tell you how to prepare to nail your interview.
The Molecular Sciences Research Center hosted an open house last Friday. CIRE2N participated and gave interactive presentations to students and the open public. The Ciencia Arte gallery was on the activity as well, giving the opportunity for everyone to see it and vote. #NSFfunded #NSFCrest
ACS celebrated it's 19th anual festival of Chemistry last Sunday at El Paseo de la Princesa in San Juan. Under a really sunny day, students from different universities and schools gave presententations about all the elements from the periodic table. This year's theme was Marvelous Metals: Celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table. CIRE2N was assigned the element Ruthenium. This element a is very rare metal that is often used as a catalyst.
There was a workshop on Proyect Base Learning last Friday September 13, 2019. The workshop was presented by the doctoral student, Ana Fernández Ruíz. Proyect Base Learning is"an effective teaching model that focuses the learning process on a real project that is relevant to the student". In CIRE2N, we use this learning process with our students. They learn while engaging in activities and research in Environmental Nanotechnology with scientists from different universities. This workshop, that was atended by 15 CIRE2N students, helps them understand this teaching model so they know how to use it in the future. #NSFfunded #NSFCrest
