Científico Latino offers professional development workshops to support diversity & inclusion, and the careers of underrepresented students in STEM. We are contracted for interactive workshops at universities, research and educational institutions. Click here for a full list of workshops that we have offered in the past.
Making STEM accessible to everyone is our priority. However, it is important to us that we ensure that our team members (graduate students and recent PhD graduates) and dedicated volunteers to STEM outreach are properly compensated for their time in developing workshops. Thus, we cannot participate in unpaid professional services.
