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.

All programming is linked to the Next Generation Science Standards. Act 48 credit is available for Middle School and High School.

Students can collect as many stamps as they want in their passport booklet by visiting corporate and higher education exhibit booths. For more details, see Student Assessment: Passport System.
