Mujeres científica presentes en el simposio que nos deleitaron con sus historias y experiencias. 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.
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
In order to promote excellence in science education for high schools, CIRE2N will sponsor a five week summer research program, from june 10 to July 3, 2019; created specifically for teachers and high school students. This program will allow 10 student-teacher pairs to be trained to do research about Environmental Nanotechnology in one of the laboratories of the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras. During the summer, participants will elaborate a research proposal to continue it during the semester and another one for an educational activity to be made in their school. Benefits: Workshops will be given on proposal writing, [...]
During a workshop given by Dr. Bonny Ortiz last friday, CIRE2N students learned how to make animations to educate and communicate science to the community. They'll be able to use this later to portray their research with these techniques, making science more accesible and exciting to all. March 29, 2019 the second part of this workshop will be given by Dr. Bonny Ortiz in the analytical chemistry laboratory at 9:00 a.m. #NSFfunded #NSFCrest
