kforce kids' stem fairs

Inspiring the Next Generation

With a shortage of talented people to fill the most in-demand STEM roles, as many as 2 million STEM jobs are predicted to go unfilled. Our Kforce Kids' STEM Fair was formed to inspire future professionals to break into the STEM talent landscape. 

Our first Kforce Kids' STEM Fair

In March of 2019, we held our first-ever Kforce Kids' STEM Fair at our Tampa headquarters which aligns with our stewardship pillar of educating the next generation of innovators, creators and experts. Guests at our Tampa Kids’ STEM Fair enjoyed science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related activities led by 14 community partners.

Kids also had the opportunity to meet nine talented professionals in a STEM field. This event was open to children throughout the community, with an emphasis on organizations such as Hope Children’s Home.  

 

 

With community partners from Aetna to Microsoft, over 230 guests at our Tampa STEM fair learned about different career paths available in this growing field that make a meaningful impact on our lives. Students in grades K-8 and their families had the opportunity to explore their curiosity in STEM by experiencing hands-on activities ranging from LEGO mosaic models to coding games.

With the resounding success of our first event, our STEM fair has since expanded to a national level. Hear from our Kforce leaders at each event about the importance of our STEM fairs.

Kforce Kids' STEM Fair | Tampa - POSTPONED

Kforce has been monitoring the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) closely and due to new CDC guidelines regarding events and gatherings has decided to postpone the Kforce Kids’ STEM Fair. We are so grateful for our partners who support the fair and intend to announce a rescheduled date as soon as possible.

The safety and well-being of everyone who walks through our doors is always our priority at Kforce. As you are aware, new information about the virus is quickly becoming available and we will continue to proactively do our part to keep others safe and healthy. We sincerely hope each of you will be able to join us at a later date and will keep you informed.
