Ciencia Joven Academies
Fundación Ciencia & Vida, under the auspices of Merck, is mentoring the program “Science Academies” in our local community of Ñuñoa. This initiative, implemented with great success since 2015 by Fundación Ciencia Joven in numerous educational establishments in Santiago and Valparaíso, aims at improving science education at the basic and high school levels through the development of STEM competencies in both students and teachers. In 2018, the Academies were extended to Ñuñoa, benefiting 7 schools, 7 teachers and more than 120 students. As general coordinator of the program, Ciencia & Vida contributes with scientific supervision and guidance, and supplies its own science educational products.
