About this Award

YoMo is a youth festival that inspires young people about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design and Maths (STEAM). YoMo brings classroom learning to life while encouraging them to pursue careers in these vital sectors.

The fast pace of technology and the complexities of today’s world require new generations to be equipped with a new set of skills. In an increasingly data-driven future, skills gaps across all industries are poised to grow. Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics additive manufacturing and other emerging technologies are happening in ever shorter cycles, changing the very nature of future careers. The STEAM sector is at the forefront of this change.

The YoMo Award for Best STEAM Activity for Young People is introduced to recognize the value of STEAM-based educational initiatives, programmes, products, apps, services and devices that equip young people for this challenge and help bridge this ever increasing skills gap.

This Award highlights the broad range of advances in the immersive education. It is open to all organisations that provide impactful innovation and STEAM learning methodologies targeting school-age children (6-18 years old) and/or teachers, having a tangible effect on the reduction of the skills gap, and with a particular interest in increasing digital inclusion of girls.
