From the Lab to the Field in rural Colombia

From the Lab to the Field (Del Lab al Campo) is a non-profit organization committed to the development and transformation of vulnerable communities in Latin America through science and technology.  The team is leading several social impact projects including “Science as a Motor of Dreams”, aimed at improving living conditions of the indigenous Ishipa-Wayúu community in Guajira, Colombia. The project will implement scientific and technological improvements in cacao production within a territory that has been affected by armed conflict, developing products that will add value to their school and 36 local families.

miniPCR was part of a recent field trip to engage local students in science and technology projects, as a first step towards making the Wayúu technologically self-sufficient. The image gallery below documents this wonderful experience.
