This month, scientists are getting together in coffee shops, bars, and living rooms around the world to support Puerto Rico’s long-term recovery. The grassroots organization 500 Women Scientists and the nonprofit Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) are partnering through the “Science Salons for Puerto Rico” Campaign to raise funds to transform science education in the archipelago.
With permission from 500 Women Scientists Davis & Sacramento, and in conjunction with Women’s History Month, the March 2018 edition of Sac Science Distilled will be presented as part of this benefit campaign. While it will be free to attend this event, your optional donation through the Eventbrite link will be directly routed to the Science Salons for Puerto Rico effort.
