STEM:SORTED - The coolest STEM Event for kids

By Nicolette

Parents: in the next 20 years, 80% of jobs will require either Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) skills. But more than 80% of parents either lack confidence or have little knowledge about STEM, leaving them unable to engage the younger generation with STEM subjects.

Worry not, KIDSORTED is here to help. Following the resounding success of our KIDSORTED STEM Event in 2017, this May we bring you STEM:SORTED 2018, bigger and better than before! We've searched high and low for the greatest STEM subject providers, and we're working round the clock to make this event as fun, educational and mind-blowing for your little one. STEM subjects form a fundamental basis for a significant number of career paths - that's why it's so important to encourage children to feel encouraged and confident about STEM. Confidence plays a critical role in empowering children to develop a strong passion for STEM, and the younger they start, the better.

Join us on Sunday, May 20th, at the Science Museum for an enriching, fruitful, fun and educational day with your budding scientists, engineers, coders and Mathematics experts!


What to expect on the day

Your ticket will provide access to an exhibition space, showcasing exciting and mind-blowing STEM providers. Activities will include coding demonstrations, scientific experiments, online lessons and more. Parents and children will have 2 hours to stroll around and visit all stands they are interested in, with lots to learn, share and discover!

Who to expect on the day

KIDSORTED will host a morning and an afternoon session catering to 800 people including a line-up of quality providers such as science workshops run by Little House of Science and Chelsea Physics Gardens and forensic science by The Detective Project. Your kids will also have a chance to participate in different coding workshops presented by Blueshift, Inspired Minds, Cypher, the Night Zookeeper and mama.codes. Fancy having a go at robotics? e2 Engineers and the Robotics Workshop for Schools will create some amazing Lego constructions with you. Your kids think Math is boring? The London School of Maths and Programming will change their mind about that! And for movie-fans, Young Film Academy will introduce the technology behind becoming a real filmmaker. Kelly Reeves will also capture the best moments.
