Niamani Knight

Founder

Niamani Knight is 18 years old, a recent graduate of Saugus High School,  and the Founder of S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo™.

After being selected at the age of 13 to participate in the first Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA Program) in Lancaster, CA, Knight realized many of her peers (and students in general) seemed to struggle with some of the basic educational skill sets required for long-term success. She realizes these academic rocks can only be climbed through industry expert exposure, interactive learning, and peer support. Therefore, instead of producing a product to sell in the YEA program, Knight created a platform for students and businesses to showcase their talents and discuss possibilities. She created S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo™ which emphasizes Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Manufacturing. The event also includes entrepreneurship as she believes taking ownership of one’s passion and purpose inspires results.

Since the program’s launch in 2015, thousands of students have explored interactive activities at the expo. In addition to the thousands of students that have explored the exhibition, over 10 million people worldwide have been exposed to the concept of S.T.R.E.A.M. through electronic and printed publications. Knight’s vision for her initiative is to create a memorable experience for kids, schools, and communities. She also wants to increase access to S.T.R.E.A.M. programs in underprivileged and low performing neighborhoods to encourage a movement where kids are empowered to reach their fullest potential. In the future, she hopes to create a center where kids will have access to S.T.R.E.A.M. based learning daily. Until then, Niamani is both honored and humbled to Have developing relationships with some of the world’s leading companies like Amazon, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, PPG, and many more.

I remember my mother telling me…

“When basic education poses as rocks,
you must teach HOW and WHY to climb”

Thank you, Mommy!
