About Young Innovators Fair

The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center welcomes the Young Innovators Fair on January 2-3, 2016. The Young Innovators Fair is a family event that immerses k-12 students in STEM activities in ten unique worlds each created to ignite passion on a massive scale. Students and their families can explore Sorcerers Square, Performers Paradise, Hackers Hideout, Conservationists Corner, Builders Boulevard, Pilots Pad, Lab-Rats Lair, Robots Retreat, Numbers Nation, and Biologists Bay to further develop existing interests or discover new ones.
