SciTech Teacher Testimonials

“SciTech has been such a blessing to our school over the years. When we attended in the fall of 2015, the students loved the 3D printing workshop. The following spring, we were granted a 3D printer from our PTA and started a 3D printing program at our school. During the Spring 2016 SciTech, students were extremely excited about the computer gaming workshop. We have since added Game Star Mechanics to our STEAM classes. During the last SciTech in the fall of 2016, the students became familiar with the Ozobots. You guessed it. We now own six Ozobots. The students are currently engineering a maze with ramps, tunnels, obstacles, and bridges and programming their Ozobots. SciTech Days are only a day each, but they make a huge impact on our school years.”
— Gateway School District teacher

“I have never seen my students so excited about technology! Without the Science Center, my students would have never been able to experience coding and 3D printing.”
— Madonna Catholic teacher

“I liked how there were resources for teachers too, and I also liked the website used in ‘Dinner Plates’ for comparing our total choices to the world.”
— Quaker Valley High School teacher

“Students were introduced to many concepts and were able to spend varied amounts of time at the concept due to organization. Students were interested and actively learning.”
— Chartiers-Houston Middle School teacher
