More than ever before, technology is a crucial area of study for children, and events like the 2017 Inspirefest Family Fringe help kids to see the value of that field. The event, which was held in Dublin's Silicon Docks, featured educational programming, games, and activities to engage kids in things like coding, science, and mathematics.

Beyond the kid-friendly STEM activities at Inspirefest Family Fringe, the event was geared towards an unfortunately common problem in the STEM fields: unequal gender representation. The event included representation from 'Girls Hack Ireland,' an organization that focuses on encouraging girls to consider STEM careers as viable options for them (something that will only be clearer as jobs in those areas continue to rise in demand.)
