Science education 🔬 in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 is failing, a challenge that was made worse by Hurricane Maria. In 2016, only 4 in 10 eighth grade public school students were proficient in science and Puerto Rico is among the 10 worst performers in international science tests (64 of 70). 👩🏻🎓
The crisis created by Maria has underscored the urgent need—and presented new opportunities—for an overhaul of how science is taught in Puerto Rican schools to support the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers.
Ciencia Puerto Rico, the largest global community of scientists, students, educators, and allies with ties to Puerto Rico, has launched a pilot project bringing together scientists and educators to create science lessons that foster creativity, resilience, and problem-solving skills, to empower Puerto Rican students to use science to serve their communities.
