Educators from the Pittsburgh region and beyond will gather Monday at South Fayette Township Intermediate School for the first day of the STEAM Summer Institute.

A luncheon will mark the start of the educators’ collaboration, “STEAM Studio Model for Innovation: Building Robust Learning Ecologies and Pathways in Computer Science.” The collaboration is being funded through a $500,000 PAsmart grant.

“The STEAM Studio Model for Innovation: Building Robust Learning Ecologies and Pathways in Computer Science” is designed to expand access to high-quality computing education. The eight partnering districts served through this grant are a microcosm of the commonwealth’s education systems, representing rural, urban and suburban schools. The districts include: Carmichaels and Jefferson-Morgan in Greene County; Charleroi in Washington County; Brownsville Area School District in Fayette County; Beechwood Elementary, Manchester Academic Charter, Pittsburgh Allegheny K-5, and South Fayette Township in Allegheny County.

Supported by Matt’s Maker Space, the collaboration is geared toward arriving at a better understanding of how to remove barriers and challenges for all schools in Pennsylvania.
