Día De la Ciencia / Science Day - bilingual event at Princeton's MRSEC

On April 8, 2017, PCCM held its first Día de la Ciencia at the Princeton Public Library. Forty scientists set up 20 table presentations and met with over 500 members of the community. In an attempt to improve outreach to all members of the community, PCCM organized the Día de la Ciencia event to reach the large Latino/Latina population in the town of Princeton, NJ and surrounding region. PCCM piloted Día de la Ciencia with science demos and had at least one Spanish speaking presenter at each table. PCCM worked with leaders in the community and Princeton University to help with the program. PCCM sent out advertisements in Spanish and English to local schools and distributed flyers in the community. Partners included Hispanics Inspiring Students’ Performance and Achievement (HISPA), PPPL, PRISM, YMCA, Princeton Public Library, BMS and others.
