Social Justice in Digital Art

High school students chose a social justice issue they wanted to address through art. They conducted independent research on their topic to develop a clear understanding of the issue and created multimedia posters, blending traditional art with digital art. These can be found throughout the first floor hallway.

Middle School Science Fair at SciTech!

SciTech held its Annual Middle School Science Fair January 25th. Students grades 6-8 shared their semester long Science Fair Experiments aligned to their own individual curiosities and interests. Judges from community partnerships included representatives from Carnegie Mellon University Departments of Neuroscience and Bioscience, University of Pittsburgh’s National Society of Black Engineers and Department of Biomedical Science, Fed Ex and PPG Paints. Upperclassmen from SciTech well-versed in the criteria for Science Fair from their own experiences also volunteered their expertise for the event!
