University of Puerto Rico at Bayamón Students develop a prototype solar powered vehicle capable of moving through rough terrain. They host an annual competition in which teams of students are able to independently test and showcase the vehicles they designed and built. UPR Bayamón is a 4‑year college that has partnered with UPR Río Piedras, a research institution, to provide undergraduate research experiences to a group of students each semester.

University of Puerto Rico at Carolina Develops high-impact outreach activities targeted at large audiences composed of pre-college students, teachers and the general public. They combine distinguished speakers from PR and Mainland, and education/technology exhibitions, which attract the participation of whole schools with teachers and parents that attend these events. The campus has the facilities and logistics to successfully handle these public activities.

Ana G. Méndez University System Hosts the Regional OSHA Training Center in the Bayamón Campus that provides lab safety training and expertise for college and pre-college students. They also implement the Geoteachers Professional Development Program at the Jayuya Campus aimed at middle and high school in-service teachers from the mountainous areas of central PR.

Inter American University at BayamónImplements the PR Cube Satellite Project (CubeSat). A cubesat is a miniaturized satellite (10x10x10 cm, weighing 1 kg) which contains all the satellite subsystems such as (attitude determination and control, telecommunications, power, solar panels, onboard computer, and science payload). The PR CubeSat involves IAU students and also students from other engineering schools in PR and Mainland. The ongoing project is to build a real world cubesat to be actually launched and placed in orbit by NASA.

PR NASA Explorer SchoolDevelops a range of STEM educational activities for middle school students at Marcelino Canino School in Dorado, PR.  STEM education in this school is coordinated with non-science teachers in order to reinforce Math, Science and Language skills through the coherent choice of topics and content across the curriculum, while meeting the federal and state standards for the pertinent grades. This project is also inclusive of special education students and all students covered under the American with Disabilities Act.

National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (Arecibo Observatory) Hosts undergraduate students during summers to carry out a summer research project under the guidance of scientists of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC). They also implement a series of educational activities for students and the general public at NAIC’s Visitor’s Center.

PR Department of Education

Implements structured professional development workshops requiring 16 contact hours or more for in-service STEM teachers with the participation of active researchers and scientists.

EcoExploratoriumWill be Puerto Rico’s premier science and technology education center and will serve as an extension to the formal science and math classroom education, a science-based research facility, a center of scientific and technology exchange with the world. This first-of-its-kind initiative will engage the community in exploring science, technology and the environment and will ensure that the students of Puerto Rico become inspired to explore, share and protect the unique natural environment of their island home.  As the meeting point or center of gravity for local, national and international scientists and partnerships, the EcoExploratorio will position Puerto Rico as the scientific destination of the Caribbean.
