Experience SciTech Days!

Middle School and High School Programs

SciTech Days are a special kind of field trip that features the growth areas of Pittsburgh: biotech & health, nanotechnology & advanced materials/processes, information technology & robotics, and eco tech (think environment & energy). It also connects visitors with leading scientists and technologists in a fun, dynamic atmosphere.

This hands-on event allows you to register middle and high school students for cutting-edge workshops and featured programs, as well as explore interactive exhibits from leading STEM companies and higher education organizations.

SciTech programming is designed to offer a diverse and broad range of topics. Programs emphasize:

  • Cross-curricular learning integrating fields such as science and art or science and politics.
  • Real-world connections encouraging citizen decision-making and civic engagement.
  • Career awareness featuring interactions with professionals, regional opportunities, and hands-on activities highlighting project-based learning, teamwork, and critical thinking skills that are essential for success in these fields.

Each program varies as to the degree of these components. Feel free to ask for a fuller description of what to expect in a workshop or theater program.
