EBICS partners with other STCs at the 2011 AGMUS Research Symposium in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The AGMUS Research Sympoisum is a chance for students from Puerto Rico to gain exposure to the various research and grad school opportunities at mainland institutions. Hundreds of students from institutions across Puerto Rico and the continental United States attended the symposium to present their research and to seek out other research and graduate school opportunities.
By partnering with the Education and Outreach Program Managers from the CMMAP and CMDITR Science and Technology Centers, EBICS was able to reach a broader range of students and illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of STCs.
During the morning session, we sat on a panel to highlight the graduate school opportunities at our EBICS partner institutions.
In the afternoon, the Diversity Program Manager participated in a workshop showing students how to locate summer research opportunities at Science and Technology Centers.
Several students expressed interest in getting more information about our graduate programs and will be followed up with individually.
