24 middle school school students from the Daniel Velez School at Lares, Puerto Rico accepted the challenge of being part of the guided school visit program at the Center of Pharmaceutical Learning and Development (C-PEDaL), from the University of Puerto Rico: Mayaguez Campus on October 30, 2015, with the purpose of discover more about the pharmaceutical engineer and their role on the pharmaceutical industry.
This is the second time the school participates at the guided school visits activity and it is part of the four other schools of the Fall 2015 planned visits. Students in fourth, fifth, six grade had the opportunity to experience some of the pharmaceutical industry process such as mixing, tableting, and even dissolution. Also, they learned about the risks of fire at a pharmaceutical industry.
The staff consisted of Madeline Candelaria, Luis F. Torrens, Ramiro A. Ramírez, Shakira Ramírez, Marcos Rodriguez, Pedro Hernandez, Monica M. López, Gabriela M. González, Jackelyn I. Ramos, Yaireliz M. Dávila, and Edgard A. Lebrón.
