How it Started
Our First Kforce Kids' STEM Fair
On Saturday, March 30, 2019 over 230 guests flooded Kforce corporate headquarters to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the Kforce Kids’ STEM Fair. Activities led by 14 community partners taught kids in kindergarten through eighth grade about STEM through virtual reality headsets, LEGO mosaic models, coding games and applications and much more.
“The STEM fair is really all about educating kids on the opportunities for them to change the world,” said Andrew Thomas, Kforce Chief Marketing Officer. “There’s going to be quite a delta of expertise needed in STEM, and if we can do anything to help people get excited about these important topics we must do it.”

Hear From Our STEM Experts
Infrastructure Developer, Kforce
“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.”
Ground Support Equipment Engineer
“It was so fun seeing the kids’ eyes light up with each of the activities and learning about different STEM fields. It’s important to show kids at a young age that STEM jobs are available to them.”
Dr. Faisel Syed
Medical Director at Dedicated Senior Medical Center
“I’d like the children to know that anything is completely possible. Coming to this fair allowed them to meet different professionals who prove they can be anything they want to be when they grow up.”
