The Port plans to announce a new partnership that will enhance science and technology educational opportunities for students in the San Antonio area.
A press release said the ceremony will include the unveiling of an exciting new hands-on exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology’s AREA 21. As part of the announcement, over 50 middle school students from area schools will be present to engage in the exhibit.
Abbott will be joined by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Councilwoman Dr. Adriana Rocha Garcia, Port San Antonio President and CEO Jim Perschbach, Boeing CEO Stephanie Pope and Port San Antonio Talent & Technology Development & Integration Vice President Will Garrett.
The arena held its first official concert, a Smashing Pumpkins concert back in May of 2022. Incubus is set to perform at San Antonio’s Tech Port Arena on Thursday, Feb. 2.
