MaCTec (http://www.mactecperu.com/) is an initiative created by Javier Navarro, Professor at the University of Texas, who believe that a way to improve our society is by empowering young girls and by encourage them to develop critical thinking. MaCTec does this by giving the opportunity to young girls to participate in free scientific workshops for around 8 months. All the work done here is voluntary.
I have had the opportunity to participate in this initiative since 2014, giving feedback to the workshops and preparing a photosynthesis workshop with Daisy Unsihuay. The most meaningful part of this work is to contribute to a better life for this young girls.
