A few moments ago I received the very good news that the MRS Foundation has approved our outreach project “Hagamos con-Ciencia (Let-s make Conscience/with Science). The MRS will support our outreach activities for kids in poor and rural areas in the south-east of the state of Coahuila, México.
In this project we will have the opportunity to travel and work with kids at primary school at their school, in addition to the activities that we were doing at the research centre CINVESTAV-Saltillo. These activities will enrich the professional development of the postgraduate students participating in this project as they will see first hand the importance of outreach activities, and the work they do at the lab. Needless to say I am very happy for us.
I would like to thank the other three Researchers that will lead this project with me: Dr. Francisco García Pastor, Dr. Keny Ordaz Hernández and Dr. Paula García Reynaldos. Francisco and Keny were part of the organisation of Cinvesniños-Saltillo last year.
