This paper addresses the state's role in supporting, fostering and development of science and technology expressed in the constitutional documents of some Latin American countries. From the reading of texts from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela we can infer that the democratization period these countries science and technology are placed as pillars of development. We will highlight the infra-constitutional aspects that.
