4th Annual Elementary Family STEM Night

The School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science held its 4th annual Elementary Family STEM Night on March 11th in the John Jay Gym. 

The event was free and open to students in grades K-4 and their families.  With about 150 participants, families were able to engage in STEM activities together such as: Carnegie Science Center's mobile planetarium, Befuddled Farms honey tasting, Fern Hollow Nature Center's microscopic animals, Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium and many more. 

This event is offered annually through the SEMS Research & Outreach Center.

smART: Science Meets ART is the idea that blending science and art will help keep students engaged and strengthen valuable scientific skills. Using this concept we developed a week long summer camp for local seventh through ninth grade students. During this camp our students explored four areas of science---Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Below you will find a collection of information not only about our smART camp, but also about how to start your own smART camp and incorporate smART into your classroom.
