Science Day at UMET
PRPI participated in the UMET Science Day on October 16th , 2015. We had two display tables with optical demos and a rotating 30 minute presentation at the Muñiz Souffront Auditorium with a presentation on the International Year of Light 2015, the centenary of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, and a “laser balloon popping” demo to teach about color and interaction of light. This activity was coordinated with Professor Victor Rodríguez from the UMET School of Science and Technology. We had more than 700 high-school students and teachers attending the activity and raffled a laser projector for the teachers to use in their schools. The winner was Mr. Eddie Montalvo, Counselor at University Gardens High School (in the picture, receiving the award from Prof. Rubén Gordillo, Marketing Coordinator of PRPI).
