The Geek Street Fair hosted by Google is an interactive, free event to inspire kids to pursue careers in science,technology, engineering, math (STEM) and computer science. Think traditional street fair, but instead of funnel cakes and ferris wheels, we have educational virtual games, robotics and electronic tinkering.
To show the breadth and diversity of what is happening in New York City’s tech scene, Google is partnering with nearly two dozen tech companies, community based organizations, museums and content creators from across the city who will provide fun activities to show how tech is driving innovation in a wide array of industries ranging from arts and entertainment to sports and education. The list of partners for this year’s event can be found below.
This year’s street fair will be held at Union Square Park on Thursday, October 13, 2016, from 12:00pm-5:00pm. The fair is open to the public but if you would like to sign your class or after school program up for a specific time slot, please RSVP here.
