Carlos R. Solís, El Jaguar Quetzal

Cada vez que muere un Jaguar, se apaga una estrella en el cielo
Every time a Jaguar dies a star goes off in the sky

Once there was a beautiful Rain forest. It had orchids, Kapok trees and they were beautiful.
Adelina Solís, (6 years old) April 1995

Here you will find some of the things I do, some the things I like and some of the things I find useful on the web. But first, lets get a traditional cup of Guatemalan café! Why Guatemalan? Because having been born there I know it is THE BEST CAFE in the world.

Me I work for the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning at Rice University, in Houston, Texas. I am, these days, concerned with education and with finding ways to integrate computer technology and networks with it. Therefore, when I an not at a meeting at the Houston Independent School District, I spend most of my time at Hogg Middle School, an inner city school in the Houston Heights. My new carrer started at the Rice School. However, I ocasionally have, and used to have, another life. I have a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Rice University. It was there that my web work started as I wrote the second edition of the Paper Wasp Behavioral Ecology pages.

While working on wasp DNA fingerprinting, I became involved in conservation work and started thinking that chasing biomolecules around was a senseless endevour if the sources of those molecules were being flushed down the drain because of environmental destruction. It was at that time that I became a parent/Rice University staff volunteer at the Rice School and created the BioEsfera Project . Working closely with twleve teachers at the Rice School I decided that I could make a bigger difference by becoming involved with education through technology, than in any other way. The rest is history. Well, sorta.


The tiles below will lead you to some of my work and things I like.
