“Women in Science”

The Italo-Latin America Institute (IILA) and the International Centre of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) in Italy, partnered with both The System for Integration (SICA)- and the Educational and Cultural Coordination (CECC) of Central American Countries to bring a model scientist to the classroom of Dominican Republic school girls. This was part of the coordinated efforts carried out to entice little girls to follow careers in STEM. Carmenza Spadafora was the Motivational Speaker chosen for this Forum named “Women in Science”
