On Thursday, May 18th Pittsburgh SciTech recognized our amazing students at the annual SciTech Awards Night. Awards were given based off of student character, achievement and athletic excellence. The event was held at Scaife Hall on the University of Pittsburgh campus and was widely attended. Thank you to all of the staff and family members that attended this spectacular event!

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.
Thank you so much to the amazing moms, grandmoms, aunts, big sisters and family friends that joined us for the 3rd Annual Muffins for Moms event! It was an amazing success and our staff was overwhelmed to have over 90 guests join us for breakfast pastries and beverages. The student run photo booth was highly utilized and hard copies of the photographs will be distributed in the next two weeks!
