Abstract: Einstein Schools was one of the global projects coordinated during the International Astronomical Union centennial celebration during 2019 (IAU100). The project was designed to provide ideas and high quality resources for high school level teachers and students to learn about gravity and relativity. It provided worldwide guidance to more than 200 schools through the website. This article presents some of the activities that took place in Puerto Rico associated with this global project. We describe the strategies that were used to involve high school level students and teachers in different educational activities. We reflect on the lessons learned and possibilities as we look towards the future.
