Remember, the application deadline for students wishing to participate in the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy is this Friday, December 12, 2008. There will be a total of 250 students in grades 6-9 accepted. Interested students and families should visit the academy Web site for additional information, or check out what TECHburgher had to say about it back in October.
The Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy is the product of three years of expert planning and research. Starting with a vision of the Pittsburgh Public Schools Board of Directors and Superintendent Mark Roosevelt, original research and planning was conducted at Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management starting in August of 2006. The Academy was then designed and implemented by Pittsburgh Public Schools staff.
At the new Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy students will become scientists, innovators, and engineers. The Academy will exist to provide opportunities for students to Dream. Discover. Design.
Students set goals and generate ideas, research and discover answers, and design real solutions for the kinds of real-world problems that they will face after graduation.
Pittsburgh Public Schools is opening this unique Academy in August of 2009. The Academy’s leadership team is working to create real connections to corporate and career opportunities, and forming a committee with this purpose.
If you are interested in learning more about the new Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy join them at the Technology Council at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, October 14, for a no-obligations information and input session.
