President Opens Argentina’s Tecnopolis Science Fair

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri opened the 6th Tecnopolis science and technology fair Tuesday on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, describing it as “a trip into the 21st century” that focuses on renewable energy, growth and sustainable consumption.

The fair aims “to become a place for encounters,” where Argentines can come together to experience different cultural “content,” Macri said.

Tecnopolis “is a marvelous place,” offering a voyage through science, technology and culture, as well as entertainment via sports and music for “children, teens and adults,” the president said.

The official inauguration comes a day after the fair opened its gates in Villa Martelli on Monday, when Tecnopolis organizers said in a Facebook post that they welcomed some 50,000 visitors.

The fair, sponsored by the Federal Media and Public Content System along with the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry, offers conferences, workshops and a variety of activities related to science, the arts and technology.

The exhibitions include a dinosaur pavilion, an area devoted to bugs and an Aerolineas Argentinas plane, as well as theater and musical performances, YouTuber encounters and “new generation musicians,” Macri said.

“We hope everyone who visits the fair will leave with new interests and much enthusiasm,” Macri said, adding that the government extended Tecnopolis this year to the federal level, with fairs in the provinces of Salta, Jujuy, La Rioja, Santiago del Estero and Tierra del Fuego.

Admission to Tecnopolis is free and the fair runs until Oct. 10.
