Free fun for kids at Technopop festival!

Technopop (www.technopop.co.uk), a groundbreaking new festival for kids, has been getting them engaged with science and technology in a fun, exciting and interactive way.

Based at TIQ Stratford City (The International Quarter) London, the festival boasted family shows from the Science Museum, a Saturday coding club and workshops galore, with top names from across science, design, medicine and technology, including building your own rocket car with Bloodhound SSC, the Technology Makeshop from leading digital & brand agency Wolff Olins and the largest design & build workshop ever from A Class of Your Own, replicating a professional construction design team, with up to 400 youngsters. The ArcelorMittal Orbit was also open and gave children the chance to go up and experience the UK's tallest sculpture, artwork and feat of engineering!

There was also inspiration from top science personalities, such as CBBC science presenter Fran Scott, along with dynamic organisations such as STEMettes and ScienceGrrl, set up in order to celebrate and support women in science.

Aimed at children aged between 6 and 19 years' old, this free-to-attend event for schools, colleges and youth groups offered plenty to keep all and sundry fully entertained.
