Educator's Corner

Prepare your future talent pipeline.

STEM Summit:

The STEM Summit is a one-day event each Spring designed to showcase the diverse array of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math related careers that are available in southwestern Pennsylvania. We invite students, educators, administrators and parents to join us as we work to promote the future pipeline of technology talent in the region. Company tours are the highlight of this program!

Three Rivers Education Technology Conference (TRETC):

Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference (TRETC) is the best opportunity all year for teachers and K-12 administrators and higher education decision makers in the Pittsburgh region. TRETC allows you to network with peers and choose from over 50 professional development sessions to enhance your classroom teaching abilities.

LAUNCH:

Learn. Aspire. Understand. Navigate. Connect. Highlight.

The LAUNCH program transforms the natural curiosity of high school girls into a voice of leadership in the STEM industry. Through our comprehensive program, high school girls will LAUNCH Logogain insight into their leadership style and be equipped with the confidence to pursue a successful career path in STEM. LAUNCH integrates the Athena leadership curriculum, interactive portfolio development, and professional mentors working in STEM. Through their engagement, our participants experience growth as leaders and exit the program prepared to create positive changes in their chosen career path. 

Speakers of STEM:

Our mission is to connect STEM professionals to middle school students from the Pittsburgh region. We have gathered a panel of speakers currently working in STEM careers to present a customized experience based on the school’s learning goals, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and Career Education, and Work (CEW) standards. In turn, the students will have the opportunity for an on-site visit in the STEM industry to see a practical application of their classroom experience. We have the hypothesis that if you enrich student awareness of the importance and value of STEM careers, then students will have the confidence to pursue an innovative career in our community.
