Summer STEM Education Opportunities in Pittsburgh

I didn’t know much about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education until my son showed interest in math and engineering in recent years. Honestly, I am more of a creative person so I admit that I didn’t understand STEM education or its importance at first. The more I read about it, however, the more I realized how beneficial it is to my son and his education. 

STEM Education in Pittsburgh with SnapologyThe more I learned about STEM, I realized that STEM education is important not only for kids who are interested in science, engineering, and mathematics but also those who are interested in English and arts. 

My son recently came home from school after a week and half of doing STEM lab activities. He was so passionate about learning and excited about the experience that I knew this is a passion that I needed to foster. 

STEM Education in Pittsburgh with SnapologyThere are lots of summer STEM programs, but one I found particularly interesting is the Snapology program which is perfect for keeping the passion for learning alive. I have been researching summer STEM education opportunities in Pittsburgh

Libraries: The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh offers a variety of STEM education opportunities throughout the year for students who are interested in learning more. If you aren’t close to a Carnegie Library, check out your local library to see if they have any STEM programs offered. 

Community Colleges: There are often programs offered at community colleges that allow young people to explore their love of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Check into their course offerings to find out if anything is being offered near you.

Snapology: This is a really interesting opportunity to keep your kids engaged even during the summer months. Snapology provides interactive, STEM programs for children featuring technology and popular building toys such as LEGO® bricks and K’Nex®. In fact there are many STEM programs to choose from so your kids are bound to find something that they love. To find a location near your or to start your own franchise, check out the Snapology website.

If we want a society and culture that work for everyone, we need innovation in our relationships along with innovation in the STEM fields and STEM education. As an educator my worry is to build caring (educational or not) relationships with my students in order to improve their curiosity and research skills. There are ideas, concepts, and practices in the maker movement that help me to improve the participation of my students in the creation of shared knowledge. I mean the idea of remix, share designs, open tools, the constructionism, the community, the philosophy of DWO, etc. But there are several attitudes that are not helping me at all, for example, the need for the latest super powerful technology gadget as the main concern, the vision of technology like exclusively functional(not poetic) and the focus on the product forgetting that in learning the thing that really matters is the process.

I didn't even realize that Pittsburgh offered so many opportunities for children to be introduced to STEM. This makes sense being that Pittsburgh is quickly becoming a top tech hub in the country!

These STEM programs seem like a fantastic way to keep kids engaged during the summer. Being able to give them an outlet for learning over the summer is fantastic.

I'll admit that I didn't learn a lot about advanced STEM during my education so the fact that there is a place where children can still learn it these days is amazing!
