U.S. Supports Science Fair on Robotics and Renewable Energy
On October 29, students and faculty of El Salvador’s Don Bosco University (UDB) launched the school’s first ever Science Fair focusing on projects related to Robotics and Renewable Energy.
UDB serves as host to the only U.S.-funded Science Corner in El Salvador, and embassy officials worked closely with UDB faculty on Energy Research to coordinate the Fair.
During the event, which lasted through October 30, students and experts gave technical talks about various topics related to robotics and renewable energy, including demonstrations of student-led projects and competitions between robots built by students from various schools in Soyapango.
U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Officer Mari Tolliver joined the Rector of UDB, Federico Miguel Huguet, as well as representatives from El Salvador’s National Energy Board and 400 students from various high schools throughout Soyapango for the opening ceremony.
The U. S.-funded Science Corner at UDB provides a space for experiments, research and development of projects related to technologies that advance the use of renewable energy.
