BELONG in STEM
Bringing Educational Learning Opportunities for New Growth in STEM
This FREE program provides bridges from classroom learning to the real world through hands-on educational experiences, connections to industry careers and exposure to future opportunities for students.
With support from Arconic Foundation, ABC CREATE and the Digital Foundry partnered to create BELONG in STEM (Bringing Education Learning Opportunities for New Growth in STEM) for high school students who are typically underrepresented in STEM careers. Sessions will be held at locations throughout the New Kensington area including at the Corner Launchbox, the Penn State New Kensington campus, the Digital Foundry and at various organizations.
7th-12th grade students who are ready to have fun exploring technologies like robotics, smart systems, computer-aided design and manufacturing, AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality) and building STEM skills with other high school students in the Alle-Kiski area. No prior experience with technologies or STEM is needed.
