We have confirmed that we are heading to Puerto Rico for a week, April 4-10. We are working with our colleagues with the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, a land grant university. We are providing free services as a contribution to help our colleagues in their recovery. Our host is the Puerto Rico Science Technology and Research Trust.
Liz Nilsen has organized six volunteer members of our SD faculty team; 2 from Purdue, 2 from Northern Illinois; 1 from UNC; 1 from Howard.
Everyone is paying their own way. NJIT has made arrangements to pay for food for the training and the community session. Here’s our schedule:
- On April 4, we are meeting with the head of the Puerto Rico Science Technology and Research Trust.
- We are doing a workshop from the 5th through the 7th. Right now over 40 people have signed up.
- April 9 we have a community meeting from 9-3:30 in which our trainees will assist. WE have over 100 people signed up.
- April 8 is a day off. 🙂
