PROSSATeam Members Ademyr Rivera •From Bayamón, Puerto Rico and he enjoys listening to music, playing video games and watching movies. • Will be majoring in Computer Science at the Metropolitan University, Puerto Rico. •As part of the Arecibo Observatory Academy and the AGMUS pre-college research program, he worked in the Computer Science division with the “Trigonometry Solver App for Windows Phone 7” project. • Works as a researcher in the PROSSATeam with the software and electronics parts of our projects.
  10. 10. PROSSATeam Members Jemaris Martes •From Jayuya, Puerto Rico;  and reading, traveling and painting are her hobbies. •Will be majoring in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez. • As part of the Arecibo Observatory Academy and the AGMUS pre-college research program, she worked in the Engineering division and her project was “The use of solar energy in the Biodiesel Industry as a sustainable alternative for the glycerin purification process” • Works as a researcher in the PROSSATeam with the mechanical structure and assembly of our projects, and her role also involves the informative presentations of the team.
  11. 11. Team Projects
  12. 12. PROSSATeam Greenhouse Project By: PROSSATeam prossat.nasa@gmail.com
  13. 13. Project Assignment • A Greenhouse project was assigned by our mentor, Dr. Sean Casey. • The tasks were divided between each member of the team. • New hardware and software was created for the project.
  14. 14. Why a Greenhouse Project? • A greenhouse can be a food developing alternative. • Promotes agriculture. • An educational project for students. • While growing plants, we can develop a potential space greenhouse system. • This project could be a food source for the ISS as well as for future space missions (Moon, Mars, etc).
