“We are always excited to go to a new country: it is very interesting to work in a different environment, meet new people, start new collaborations, and learn from the local educators how we can be of help.  Guyana was no different!” says Mayrose Salvador, the executive director of Pueblo Science.

The  training was enthusiastically received by 80 teachers from all over Guyana. “The best and most exciting science workshop I ever attended “ comments Milne Seymour, a participant.

Pueblo Science is also thankful to the volunteer facilitators, St. Stanislaus College Alumni Association – Toronto, St. Stanislaus College, to Chris Fernandez, the Guyana Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Education for their hospitality and for showing the volunteers how to have fun in Guyana!
