Arecibo Observatory Site to Transform into Cutting-Edge STEM Education Center

Legacy of Innovation and Discovery Continues with Arecibo C3

While there are still operational instruments at the site that some researchers had hoped to secure funding for continued scientific work, the NSF has clarified that such plans are not part of its current agenda. However, it will entertain and assess proposals. The profound impact of the Arecibo Observatory will be presented through an interactive exhibit at the upcoming center. Wanda Díaz-Merced, the executive director of Arecibo C3, noted, “We will be building on the heritage of Arecibo, but we will be building in a wider sense,” signifying a broader commitment to education and community engagement.
