Resumen

Ciencia Puerto Rico, una organización sin fines de lucro dedicada a promover la ciencia, la investigación y la educación científica entre los latinos, organizó un simposio educativo para proveer a los estudiantes universitarios con especialidad en ciencia las herramientas, oportunidades y consejos para proseguir estudios graduados y ser exitosos en las disciplinas STEM (acrónimo en inglés para designar ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas). En este artículo, compartimos nuestras experiencias y lecciones aprendidas para que otras entidades interesadas en organizar eventos de gran envergadura consideren reclutar minorías subrepresentadas en STEM y para la evaluación de la efectividad de estos esfuerzos.
