GSMA and Mobile World Capital Barcelona announce new sponsors and venue for YoMo at Mobile World Congress 2018

The GSMA and the Mobile World Capital Barcelona today announced that the Youth Mobile Festival Barcelona (YoMo Barcelona) will take place Tuesday, 27 February through Friday, 2 March 2018 at La Farga L’Hospitalet, and will feature a media day on Wednesday, 28 February

Now in its second year, YoMo Barcelona will once again inspire future generations to pursue education and careers in science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math (STEAM) disciplines and will offer young people and educators an expanded set of activities and events. YoMo is sponsored by Bayer Hispania, Grupo Edelvives, Museo del Gas de la Fundación Gas Natural Fenosa and Robotix – Lego for Education.
“YoMo showcases the passion, energy and excitement around science and technology and the amazing innovation that is taking place across the mobile and STEAM ecosystems,” said John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA Ltd. “With nearly 1,800 hours of stimulating content, YoMo will allow students to sample a wealth of innovation ranging from how to convert mobile phones into a microscope to making virtual reality glasses with recycled materials, and much more.”
YoMo Barcelona is open to all students and education professionals in Catalonia and Spain and is free to attend. The programme is intended to motivate young people to pursue education and careers in STEAM industries and is supported by local, regional, national and European stakeholders, including the Catalan Ministry of Education, businesses across STEAM industries, professional institutions, R&D laboratories, not-for-profit charities, universities and other specialist education institutions.
It is anticipated that more than 15,000 students and educators from across Catalonia and Spain will come to Barcelona to participate in this engaging and inspiring four-day showcase of science and technology, making it the largest STEAM event in Spain. Designed for students from eight to 18 years old, YoMo Barcelona will feature educational exhibits, live shows, interactive workshops, and a wide range of hands-on activities.
