For this year's edition, we wanted to regulate the capacity of high school visitors, and limit the number of attendees in order to be able to provide a more participatory and better quality visit. “The visiting groups will be smaller because we want to improve the experience provided between the exhibiting student and the visiting student,” explains José Antonio Villas, exhibition coordinator and member of the Rubio Foundation Board of Trustees. The main topics that will provide content for the exhibition will revolve around robotics, physics, chemistry, environment, etc.

Although school visits will not begin until March 25, the exhibition will officially open on Saturday, March 23 with an open day, which can be visited free of charge by anyone interested in participating with exhibiting students and teaching staff.
