Nov. 1, 2018, New York City — The first-ever Harry Potter STEM product, robots that use Augmented Reality to teach coding to kids, t-shirts that let you see inside the body, and more, were on display November 1 at the third annual Kids & Family Tech Expo in New York City.
Hosted by Child’s Play Communications, specialists in promoting kids’ products, the Expo is the only media event specifically for tech products designed for kids and families.
This year Child’s Play also introduced STEMStation, a special section within the Expo devoted to companies showing products that, along with tech brands, complete the definition of STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Also new at this year’s Expo: Child’s Play announced the winners of the first Seriously STEM Awards, created by the agency in partnership with STEM.org to identify children’s products that genuinely teach STEM subjects.
“There has been so much focus in recent years on the importance of STEM, and rightfully so,” observed Child’s Play Communications president, Stephanie Azzarone. “This year’s Kids & Family Tech Expo recognized that in a major way and supported toy companies that are doing a great job of educating kids about STEM.”
The 2018 Kids & Family Tech Expo exhibitors included both start-ups and global brands — many of which took part in the 2017 Expo as well. This year’s exhibitors and product highlights included:
The Associated Press, Cool Mom Picks, Cool Hunting, GeekDad, Gizmodo, Parents and The TODAY Show were among the major media attending the 2018 Kids & Family Tech Expo, along with key social influencers.
