- Prepare Your Child for the Future of Work
A study by McKinsey & Company found that by 2030, up to 800 million jobs worldwide could be displaced by automation and artificial intelligence.
Jobs in fields such as computer science, engineering, and healthcare are expected to experience the most growth in the coming years. These jobs require a strong foundation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Other reports show that workers in STEM occupations earn higher wages than workers in non-STEM occupations.
With the rapid growth of STEAM industries, it’s essential that young people acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the digital age. The STEAM Fun Fest is a unique opportunity for children to learn about the exciting possibilities in STEAM fields, discover their interests and gain hands-on experience.
“STEM fields are rapidly growing, and it’s important that we prepare the next generation with the skills they need to succeed in the digital age,” said Jadesola Adedeji, co-convener at STEAM Fun Fest. “The festival provides an exciting and engaging environment for children to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics and learn about the opportunities available in these fields.”
This year’s STEAM Fun Fest will be held on July 22nd in Lagos and will feature career talks, hands-on STEAM activities – science experiments, game design, virtual and augmented reality, 3D modelling, esports, robotics, and more. The event will feature interactive exhibits and demonstrations from leading companies and organisations in the STEAM industries, as well as talks from industry experts and educators.
The theme for the 2023 STEAM Fun Fest is “Empowering the next generation for the future of work.” The event aims to equip your child with crucial digital skills necessary for the future while providing a fun and engaging learning experience. This year’s event promises to be even more exciting, with the introduction of two competitions leading up to the main event, the ESPORTS and STEAM competitions.
