YoMo celebrates its second edition at MWC Los Angeles inspiring young people to pursue careers in science & technology in an increasing mobile world. Enthusing the next generation of scientists and engineers!
Join us from October 22 – 24 at #MWC19 Los Angeles!
Over three days, YoMo Los Angeles will welcome over 15,000 students and 2,500 educators to one huge showcase of science and technology. YoMo aims to give young people a better insight into career opportunities in the STEAM sectors (science, technology, engineering, arts & design and mathematics) as a way to bridge the growing skills gap and promote social inclusion through technology.
YoMo brings classroom learning to life by delivering a huge range of educational STEAM content in a fun and engaging atmosphere: from deep-dive workshops, to dozens of hands-on interactive activities and inspiring presentations, there will be something to engage every young person and educator.
YoMo provides a unique opportunity for organizations within the STEAM sector to come together. Meet and interact with universities, research centers, institutional bodies, outreach specialists, innovators, entrepreneurs, as well as government and business leaders from the STEAM industry.
What do you want to be when you grow up? You might want to be a space pilot or a game developer. Career choices are often shaped by what we see the people around us is doing for a living, but what if the job you like does not exist yet? What if you are not aware of it yet?
This program encourages young people to discover their areas of interest, picking amongst 14 different “crews” the one that better suits them and find out the exciting opportunities behind it.
Tech4Girls is an initiative launched to drive the interest of young girls in the STEAM field and contribute to bridge the gender gap in the technology industry from the earliest stages of education. Through the Tech4Girls trail, YoMo invites young girls to discover and learn more about the dynamic role that women play in the STEAM sectors.
Want to tackle a big challenge? The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s best plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. Through the SDG trail and a number of activities on the show floor, YoMo encourages young people to discover how they can contribute to changing the world through emerging technologies.
