SciTech Middle 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.
The 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.
- Capture the interest of younger teens, as they start making choices that will affect their careers.
All school programs have clear links to Pennsylvania education standards and anchors.

"Our only mistake was not to allow
enough time to stay at the Science
Center after all the speakers so that
the kids could see all the exhibits."
