What is ESI?
Expo-Sciences are non-competitive multicultural exhibitions that showcase STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) projects developed by children and youth from around the world, as well as interactive exhibits by STEAM-related institutions.
The Expo-Sciences programme includes cultural and scientific visits, leisure activities, workshops, and conferences. National youth STEAM programme leaders meet to share and discuss best practices in STEAM promotion and education.

Participating in an Expo-Sciences is an opportunity to:
Install and animate a space to highlight youngsters,’ teachers’ and leaders’ efforts and interest in research, science, and technology innovation, enhancing their motivation while contributing to their personal development.
Establish relationships with other institutions with similar goals through the development of scientific, technical, and social projects to exchange ideas and create actions according to the needs of today’s world, for the benefit of industry, the educational sector and society at large.
Be represented at an international level through the young peoples’ projects, allowing for the spreading of knowledge amongst the main target audience (i.e., young people).
Promote Scientific Culture in a multicultural environment, allowing the sharing of experience and good practice so as to achieve higher-standard scientific activities.
The International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology
The International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology (MILSET – Mouvement International pour le Loisir Scientifique et Technique) is a non-governmental, non-profit and politically independent youth organisation, which aims at developing scientific culture among young people through the organisation of science & technology programmes, including science fairs, science camps, congresses and other high-quality activities.
MILSET was founded in 1987 in Quebec, Canada.
Thanks to MILSET, tens of thousands of young people have already met to exchange and make the most of their creations, and discuss with researchers, youth leaders, and industrialists. They have developed projects together, discovered foreign languages and cultures, and have been trained to acquire new technologies.
Due to its constant growth, various regional branches have been formed to-date aiming at having a stronger development and keeping a close connection with the organisations.

Sinaloa Higher Institute of Technology
The history of ITESUS in Mazatlan goes back to 1989 when the courses were taught in a bedroom fitted out as a classroom, training in the computing area. The predecessor of ITESUS, Computational Institute of Programming and Analysis (ICOPA), opened its door in August 1989, offering a two-year Programmer Technical Degree and computerized applications diplomas like LOTUS, WORKS, PC WRITE, and MS-DOS.
The Executive Secretary in Spanish with a knowledge of Computer Systems career was incorporated in 1992. ICOPA offered many training courses to public and private enterprises from its foundation until its end in 1994. Sinaloa Higher Institute of Technology (ITESUS) emerged in 1994. It was created by Dr. Gerardo López del Rio, to offer a university for the youth with scarce economic resources, who were rejected from public universities with his motto: "No youth stays out without the opportunity to study a carreer."
ITESUS began classes in 1994 with 16 students in BA in Administrative Computer Science, along with 80 technical studies students, and professors who were willing to teach them. ITESUS struggled without all the inconveniences, starting in a building where the main principal office was in the living room, the classrooms in the bedrooms, and some technical problems. Even these difficulties never stopped his principal from offering more careers. Nowadays, we offer more than 20 careers. In addition, the university offers some postgraduate degrees and high school studies.
All this growth and the various educational offerings, combined with the academic excellence with which ITESUS has worked since its foundation, today we are one of the favorite private institutions in Mazatlan.
