Clairton City School District Robotics Team pose with Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald

Clairton City School District is a small urban district located south of Pittsburgh  with 850 students in grades K-12. Ten years ago the robotics program propelled the school into STEM education.  Currently they have over thirty students in middle and high school enrolled in robotics classes with alumni generously contributing to the cost involved in building robots. The robotic students compete locally and nationally in competitions each year and boast the first all girls’ robotics team in Western Pennsylvania.  All secondary students have their own Chromebooks and work through google classroom with many teachers being google certified.  Many STEM initiatives are in place for our students K-12, including coding classes beginning in kindergarten and AP Computer Science in high school. This is the second year for Brainhub, a group of high school student scientists who study data on the human brain through a partnership with the CMU.
