Transportation Information for the 2017-2018 School Year

Port Authority Transportation (Grades 9-12)
Students in the Associate through Executive Levels who live two miles or more from the school are provided Port Authority Bus transportation by Pittsburgh Public Schools . This policy took effect in September of 2016. The first bus pass your son/daughter will receive will be mailed to your home. This process is coordinated through the Pittsburgh Public School Transportation Department.  The transportation department sends out a mailing to all families that will provide information regarding bus travel. You will receive this mailing prior to the start of school. The transportation department can be reached by calling (412) 338-8125
*New Students-We are very excited about the upcoming school-year. Any student, grades 9-12, living outside of the two mile school zone will receive a bus pass. We encourage parents to ride the Port Authority bus with your child before the school year begins. This will help your child get familiar with the routes, bus times and area(s) that he/she may need to know. Some students will have to catch multiple buses, so we definitely encourage the parents/guardians to do a trial run in an effort to make this a seamless transition.  If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mr. Chambers @ 412-529-7692 or the Transportation Department for more information.

Pittsburgh SciTech Girls Who Code Take NYC by Storm!

The Girls Who Code (GWC) club touched down in NYC early Friday morning.  After an afternoon of exploring, GWC met with Chris Fabian and his innovation team at UNICEF.  Here the girls showed off their applications and compared notes with this elite team of coders whose most well know effort has been developing apps that help fight the spread of Ebola in Africa.

The GWC arrived at the Regional Technovation Competition as the furthest traveled team.  Although tired and damp (from the rain), one of our teams took first place and won!  The teams are as listed: China Reddix & Aeryn Anderson(honorable mention), McKensi Ford & Amira Johnson (first place),  and Cheyenne Evans & Isabelle Walker & Caryelle Deffenbaugh (honorable mention).  Our winning team, who go by ESTEEM, is not done working.  Though they have claimed 1st place at the regional competition, their app will now be judged by a nation wide panel.  If they clear this next round, ESTEEM will be invited to the world wide Technovation competition held in San Diego.  All in all, these seven girls represented SciTech for what it truly is: an opportunity to Dream, Discover, and Design.
