Summer 2015 for Teachers and High school students PDF Print E-mail

During the month of June 2015, two programs will run simultaneously at the various CREST labs: a Research Experience for Teachers (RET) and a High School Student Summer Camp.

Programa de Investigación para Maestros de Escuelas Públicas del área Oeste de Puerto Rico

Durante el verano de 2015, seis (6) maestros de ciencias (intermedio o superior) tendrán la oportunidad de ampliar su conocimiento y descubrir las áreas de Nanotecnología y Ciencia e Ingeniería de Materiales participando del programa del Centro de Nanotecnología UPRM-CREST. Desde el 1 de junio al 26 de junio de 2015 (8:00 a.m. a 4:30 p.m.), los maestros seleccionados participarán activamente en las investigaciones que se están llevando a cabo en los laboratorios del Recinto y podrán diseñar planes para la incorporación de los principios básicos aprendidos durante esta experiencia a su salón de clase. Para más información véase la CONVOCATORIA.

Campamento de Verano para Estudiantes de Escuela Superior Pública

Simultáneamente seis (6) estudiantes de escuela superior tendrán la oportunidad de desarrollar experiencia en investigación en temas novedosos y altamente competitivos y fortalecer destrezas tales como: comunicación efectiva, solución de problemas técnicos, trabajo en grupo y liderazgo. El campamento se llevará a cabo del 1 de junio al 26 de junio de 2015 de 1:00 p.m. a 5:30 p.m. Para más información véase la CONVOCATORIA.

 
Activities began at the new Nanotechnology Center for Biomedical, Environmental, and Sustainability Applications PDF Print E-mail

Middle and high school students from Western Puerto Rico will work alongside UPRM faculty and students in CREST supported lab to develop their research skills. In most cases this will be their first experience in a research facility. They will receive training on lab safety, research methodology and specialized instrumentation. Additionally they will learn about essential writing and communications skills such as maintaining a lab notebook, creating posters, effective presentations, literature searching, and incorporating scientific literature into their final product. They will also participate in a entrepreneurship and innovation workshop.

Activities began on Monday June 2nd and will continue until June 27th when they will present their research results. High school students will also participate in a poster competition.

Continuing with our mission! PDF Print E-mail

We are pleased to announce that National Science Foundation (NSF) will support Phase II of our UPRM CREST: Nanotechnology Center for Biomedical, Environmental and Sustainability Applications.The grant award was made for $5,000,000/5 years.

The Center executive committee members are professors O. Marcelo Suárez (PI, General Engineering), Arturo J. Hernández-Maldonado (Co-PI, Chemical Engineering), Madeline Torres-Lugo (CoPI, Chemical Engineering), Agnes Padovani (CoPI, General Engineering) y Oscar Perales-Pérez (CoPI, General Engineering). More than 20 faculty members of the UPRM, most of them from College of Engineering, will be spearheading the Center’s research and education activities. Upon completion of Phase I of the Center, which is scheduled to end in August 2014 after a total budget of $5,200,000, Phase 2 represents the largest active NSF grant ever awarded to UPRM.
