What is Science Week?

Sponsored by Pittcon, Science Week offers science outreach and education to students and teachers in the Pittsburgh area.

Local schools can take advantage of interactive student workshops for students in grades first through sixth. Teachers will learn how to administer their own student workshops by attending Teacher Workshops. Teachers attending the workshops will be eligible for grants to purchase classroom science materials.
