The symposium was arranged by MIT-WHOI Joint Program graduate student, Gabriela Farfan, and WHOI research assistant Luis Valentin-Alvarado, who were, ” inspired by their own experience to reach out to people [not just scientists, but those in the surrounding community] who may normally not have exposure to science in their native tongue.”
