National Hispanic Heritage Month


We are celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month!


Here at Arecibo, we are very proud of our Hispanic colleagues. In order to highlight the work, passion, and heritage of our amazing Hispanics we decided to celebrate the contributions that make a significant difference in their respective fields. We are celebrating with weekly videos featuring Hispanics in the fields of Engineering, Physics, Biology, Space Sciences, and more.

Check back here each week to see new posts!
