Continuing the legacy of Emerson’s global commitment to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, our team in Hong Kong recently hosted a We <3 STEM Kids Day for our employees and their children.
Dubbed as the STEM Carnival, kids aged 2 to 16 years old participated in an exciting series of STEM-themed games and activities together with their parents. The games included the Dash Robot Coding Challenge where kids learned how to control a robot through coding and raced against each other; the Little Bits Bubblebot Challenge where they were taught about the basics of electrical circuits; and an InSinkErator-themed mobile app game that showed the inner workings of a food waste disposer. There was also a photo booth where kids can have their picture taken dressed in their STEM-themed costumes like an engineer, a pilot, or a doctor.
STEM Days are so memorable for both Emerson employees and our kids. The kids get to see where mom and dad work and the impact they are making to societies. They are so proud and highly inspired by their parents, who are their most important role models
Through STEM Day events, we hope to continually inspire and empower the next generation of innovators by making science, technology, engineering and math more fun and accessible.
