In order to promote excellence in science education for high schools, CIRE2N sponsored a summer research program from June, 18 to July, 13 2018; created specifically for teachers and high school students.

This program allowed 10 student-teacher couples to be trained to do research in Environmental Nanotechnology in one of the laboratories of the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras for four weeks during the summer.
