Carnegie Science Center’s Chevron Center for STEM Education and Career Development provides a focused forum for collaboration among key STEM education stakeholders, from pre K-12 school districts to colleges and universities, workforce and career development organizations to parents and caregivers. Efforts are organized through the cultivation of a highly engaged community advisory group consisting of active leaders in all the relevant sectors.
As a proven leader in, and advocate for, informal science education, Carnegie Science Center has demonstrated the ability to work with all of the relevant stakeholders, and to deliver high quality, and meaningful informal STEM education programming and experiences to the students of our region. For our nation, and our region, to remain economically and environmentally strong and sustainable, we must recruit from among an informed citizenry the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians who will solve the complex problems of our times. The Chevron Center for STEM Education and Career Development exists to prepare the growing population of Pittsburgh with those skills for a bright future through such projects as CanTEEN, SciTech Days and the Future City Competition.
