Event description

Description

Overview

The STEM Festival is a day for students from ages 9-15 with an interest for computer science, engineering, robotics or anything tech to immerse themselves in awesome, fun technology workshops. We’ll start with a general Q&A panel with our founders, past students, and other notable people, then move on to the interactive hands-on workshops. Students will learn to crack a code in Python, build robots with Arduino from scratch, develop games with Processing, and much more.

Workshops

  • Cryptography with Python

  • Interactive websites with Javascript

  • Circuitry and Soldering

  • Designing Robots with Arduino

  • Game Development with Processing

  • And more….

FAQ

  • Students should be from ages 9 to 15. Parents are welcome to attend and participate in the workshops as well!

  • We’ll provide pizza, snacks, and drinks throughout the day. Don’t worry about any of that stuff, just focus on having fun and making cool projects!

  • Parents who will be accompanying students within the workshops need a ticket as well.

  • No experience required! Beginners are welcome.

Affordability

We try our hardest to make sure every student has the opportunity to attend our festival. That’s why the ticket price is only $15 - the real cost of hosting the festival is much, much higher for us. Our festival is a not-for-profit event, and every ticket only helps us get even more awesome projects :)


Who are we?

Founded by three sophomores at Stuyvesant three years ago, we started with the mission of reinventing tech education.

At Kinet-X, we mentor students to turn their ideas into reality with code, software, and machinery. Our students build full-fledged web applications, develop their own robots, and learn to create real inventions with real impact. Our two week immersive summer programs cover a wide range of topics, from CS topics like AI, Autonomous Systems, Web Development, Data Science to Engineering topics like Magnetism, Construction, Circuitry to topics that combine both like robotics. We were featured in the Wall Street Journal.

Our mentors attend schools like Caltech, University of Chicago, and MIT.
