Resounding Success at the 8th Science Symposium

March 15, 2019

On March 15, 2019, the 8th Science Symposium took place at Segundo Ruiz Belvis High School in Hormigueros. The symposium featured a variety of exhibits showcasing different scientific projects conducted by students from the same school. Various educational entities also participated, bringing valuable materials and information about the work they are doing. Some of the entities included the “Ecoexploratorio”, Atlantic University, the solar car team from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez, and the Sea Grant Program of Puerto Rico, among many others. Approximately 1,200 students from different schools in the western area attended the event. They appeared very excited to observe the demonstrations and participate in the small workshops offered. Sea Grant provided exhibits/workshops/demonstrations on sand composition and sea-level rise, the latter related to climate change. Teachers were also briefed on the educational guides of the Program. The activity went excellently; it was a great experience for everyone present. We thank teacher Ángela del Toro for inviting us and wish her the greatest success in her educational endeavors.
