The fun of new technology on its way to Los Cristianos
The TLP Weekend is coming to La Laguna, Santiago del Teide and Arona.
The event, free and aimed at the whole family, will offer virtual reality, technological workshops and training days or shops, as well as costume play and K-pop contests.
Tenerife Cabildo hosted the presentation of the TLP Weekend that will take place in various parts of the island, including Arona from May 18th to 20th in the Jesús Domínguez “El Grillo” Pavilion”.
The fun activities will include the construction of robots, videogame tournaments and a demonstration of the First Lego League.
This event is sponsored by TLP Tenerife, the Tenerife area 2030 of the Cabildo, INtech Tenerife and the Asociación Innova7, and has the collaboration of Arona council.
“The TLP Weekend is in line with the strategy we have aimed at young Arona, which is to promote a healthy, inclusive and educational leisure,” said Arona’s youth councillor, Yolanda Mendoza.
Insular councillor of Tenerife 2030, Antonio García Marichal said: “The goal is that both young people and families can enjoy an event that brings them new technologies, not only leisure, but also training, where children and young people can access different workshops. This is precisely what we want with the Tenerife 2030 strategy, to have an island more capable and trained to face the challenges of the future. “
“TLP Weekend allows us to decentralise the activities that are done in a big event like TLP Tenerife and take them to different points of the island.
Officials from La Laguna and Santiago del Teide both said how pleased they were to be hosting spin-offs from the event.
