Black Engineers introduce students to STEM

The University of Pittsburgh and Penn State University’s National Society of Black Engineers Chapters held a Science Technology Engineering and Math Fair in February titled “A Walk for Education.” The STEM Fair was held on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, at the Swanson School of Engineering’s Benedum Hall and the O’Hara Student Center. This collaborative event between Pitt and Penn State was planned with high school students in mind. There was a full day of activities, food and competitions to introduce students to educational opportunities and careers in the STEM fields. Students had the chance to meet and talk with current STEM students, professionals in STEM industries and organizations, and participate in a hands on STEM competition. The keynote speaker was Sossena Wood, national chairperson for the National Society of Black Engineers. More
