SciTech High School Days feature the growth areas of Pittsburgh: Biotechnology, IT, Robotics, Advanced Materials Processes, Environmental Technology, and Nanotechnology — and connect students with leading scientists and technologists in a fun, dynamic atmosphere.
Programs are designed by a teacher advisory council and partnerships with local industry and universities. The intent is to:
Students and teachers select activities such as demonstrations, Tech Zone -- corporate and higher education interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by cutting-edge experts in science and technology through a conference style approach.
All school programs have clear links to Pennsylvania education standards and anchors.
- Prepare students for the workforce as scientists, engineers, and technicians, and
- Raise awareness of the importance of understanding the science and technology fundamentals in our society.
