Kforce Kids' STEM Fairs

 

Inspiring the Next Generation

Empowering People Through Knowledge Sharing® is Kforce’s commitment to our community. That’s why the Kforce Kids' STEM Fair was created to encourage future generations to get engaged in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We have since partnered with world-class community partners and STEM experts to host STEM fairs across the country. See what they have to say about their experience interacting with the kids in one of the sections below.

A New Kind of STEM Experience

Though in-person STEM fairs have been temporarily postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are excited to offer a new virtual STEM experience. In the Kforce Kids’ STEM at Home program, students tuned in weekly for four virtual, contactless sessions, each focused on one area of STEM. Check out our on-demand session recordings below and follow along at home with the supplies listed in our parent handout.

Let’s combat the declining STEM interest by providing fun and engaging ways for kids to explore and learn. Introducing STEM education early on will be pivotal for these future professionals to secure their space in this coveted field.

We researched, downloaded and tested hundreds of STEM apps for grades K-12 to list our Top 20 Kforce Picks. Check out this eBook and resources split up by grade level for our suggestions.

“I started working with computers late in life and really didn’t think I had the aptitude to do it. Come to find out, I’m born to do it. So hopefully some kids today found something that they’re born to do.”
