Ciencia Viva, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit educational corporation founded in May 2002 in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. As our communities are becoming increasingly bilingual, the math and science achievement gap between bilingual students and their native language-speaking peers is ever widening. Ciencia Viva exists to make sure that these children are not left behind in their understanding of science.
