Parents, educators, students, and employers are invited to take part in the “STREAM Kids Expo,” an event that engages students in real-world issues through exciting hands-on activities facilitated by industry experts such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, Gantom Lighting & Controls, Wells Fargo, BMW, and Solar City.
This is the first ever Santa Clarita Expo hosted by STREAM Kids Expo. The theme for this expo is ” Ready or Not, Here we Come : Future Industry Heroes.” Students in grades five through eight and their families will have the opportunity to explore STREAM–Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Manufacturing–based activities and interactive exhibits from industry experts, organizations, schools, and companies.
Started as a business project for the Young Entrepreneur’s Academy by Niamani Knight, then an 8th grader at Hillview Middle School, STREAM Kids Expo is an event that hosts middle schoolers from typically low income or underserved communities.
The mission of STREAM Kids Expo is to close the gap between Today’s Education and Future Employment Opportunities by first listening to kid’s interest, then creating unique learning experiences for kids to explore endless possibilities.
Parents, educators, students and employers are invited to take part in four exciting panel discussion events happening live during the Expo. Each Parent Café will have a unique subject focused around our Future Industry Heroes and the changing world they’ll experience.
The Expo will be on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10a.m. to 3p.m. at Saugus High School located on 21900 Centurion Way. Tickets cost $5 for early admission and can be purchased here: https://streamkidsexpo.org/event-info/expo-2016-scv/.
