Thank you for another successful STEM Summit, Pittsburgh!

Please check out the latest report from the National Science Board, entitled "Revisiting the STEM Workforce," here.


Bridging the gap between education, innovation, and industry-led solutions!  Join educational and business colleagues for "STEM 2 Work."  Discover successful examples of school and community partnerships with businesses, universities, and non-profits. 

This year’s STEM Summit is using the recently published report by the Carnegie Science Center, entitled, “Work to Do: The Role of STEM Education in Improving the Tri-State Region’s Workforce,” as its guide for speakers and content.  Afternoon panel discussions will expand upon the topics mentioned in this report funded by Chevron with support from NOVA Chemicals.  Please download the report here so you are well versed with the content prior to the event.

Furthermore, this event is designed to allow educators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and innovators of all types to come together and learn about real solutions to enhance teacher professional development, encourage student engagement, and provide learning opportunities in traditional and non-traditional environments.
