Mexico: Half way mark

We are about half way through our SITE: Mexico program and it has been absolutely incredible. Our students have had the opportunity to work in groups to develop their problem solving and teamwork skills, have been taking a closer look into programming using the raspberry pis, made their own home-made batteries and made polymers in chemistry class! In addition to that, our students had the opportunity to learn about astrophysics and optics from INAOE scientists and professors and learned and saw all the exciting projects INAOE scientists are working on, ranging from cryogenic cooling techniques for radars to sea surveillance cameras for the Mexican marines and simulation equipment for the national air force.
