The mission of S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo is to close the gap between today’s education and future employment opportunities. The non-profit group does this by first listening to a young person’s interests, then creating unique learning experiences for the student to explore the possibilities.
S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo started as a business project for the Young Entrepreneur’s Academy by Niamani Knight – then an 8th grader at Hillview Middle School in Palmdale, Calif. The expos are held at schools in the Los Angeles area, which you can view on the website, www.StreamKidsExpo.org. Businesses are welcome to participate.
