“Plaza Ciencia”: “Eco Silla” Technology Project No. 11, Big Winner
For six days, Plaza General San Martín, in San Giusto, became the venue for the eleventh edition of “Plaza Ciencia”, the municipal fair dedicated to science, technology and innovation. Every day, students of technical schools in Matanzas presented their innovative projects and once again demonstrated the great potential of young people and the enthusiasm they bring when developing prototypes that not only entertain, but also improve people’s quality of life.
At the closing ceremony on Tuesday afternoon, Alicia Helguera and Jose Paes, directors of Technical School No. 6, highlighted the possibility of interoperability between different educational institutions. We want to express the voice of all private educational institutions in the manner of special education and the techniques of the entire La Matanza party. The interconnection between our schools was and remains more than just an exchange of data to implement various proposals; Perhaps it has to do with the plurality of institutional forms of life and the possibility of transforming one existence into another,” Helguera emphasized.
In addition, it celebrated the initiatives and proposals of young people for “discussion and reflection with a common goal that transcends the diversity of institutions.” For his part, Pais described Plaza Sencia as a “rich experience” in which students had the opportunity to contact other schools for “help, accompany and learn”.
During the last day of the exhibition, awards were handed out, which consist of economic support for four of the projects submitted since the beginning of the activities. First place, with a prize of 200,000 pesos, went to Ciudad Evita Technical School No. 11, which worked with School of Special Education No. 507 on the “Eco Silla” project.
in conversation with 1 digitalTahil Jribi, a fourth-year student in the institution’s computational electromechanics, explained that they had developed an elevator that would allow people who needed to pack: “We were confident we did the project ourselves and know what we were offering, but, other than the award, it was a time-sharing experience with the Escuela 507 while creating Our idea is a very cool experience, and without their help, all this would not have been possible.”
He also announced the purpose of using the funds received. “We will use the award to improve the comfort of the chair, through the materials in which it is built, and to fund the project. Additionally, we believe the goal is to coordinate with other technical high schools to significantly implement this idea with the goal of providing the lift to the people who need it.”
The “Multimedia Classroom” project, developed by Technical School No. 14 of Gonzalez Catan, was selected in second place and received a subsidy of 170,000 pesos, while the “Wings to Fly” project received Technical School No. 10 and School in Special Education No. 505 And he won third place and a prize of 140,000 pesos, while Technology No. 6 and School of Special Education No. 511 ranked fourth and received 120,000 pesos for developing the “idea”.
Lucas, the #6 tech student who co-created the project, commented that it’s an acoustic light signal intended for blind people or people with low vision. “This proposal makes it easier to cross the street without relying on a companion, because the device indicates when to cross the street. We visited the 511 school boys, they gave us their recommendations and we developed them with the trainees. Everything went well and it was a very nice experience.”
