SciTech Days are a special kind of field trip that features the growth areas of Pittsburgh: biotech & health, nanotechnology & advanced materials/processes, information technology & robotics, and eco tech (think environment & energy). Jerry” the Binturong and his friends from the Conservators Center will be onsite to educate you about a keystone species you may not know about. We were fascinated by what this tech meant for our futures, so I ended up routinely discussing it with my 20-something friends over coffee. This display will present robotics at the high school level, and will include an FTC First Robotics competition and how robots are made. Learn about our STEM programs, ongoing undergraduate research projects and our summer camps for middle school and high school girls.
And Tesla’s success is only just beginning, despite the bumpy road – it’s the most shorted stock on Wall Street right now due to the fears that have always surrounded innovative tech in its infancy. I knew I would receive a fine education at any of the schools I had to choose from and since I really fell in love with Virginia Tech and the Blacksburg community I decided on attending there.
I believe Virginia Tech is one of the greatest and most dynamic schools in the country and it should be known for its impressive programs of study and not marred by the senseless tragedy. Please come and meet Jerry and learn about him and the other amazing species that call the Conservators Center their home, like lions, tigers, caracals, lemurs and many others.
Dr James was the first employee at (a consumer electronics company, producing connected home technology) and lead the engineering design team there through from idea to shipping product. SciTech High School Days feature the growth areas of Pittsburgh: Biotechnology, IT, Robotics, Advanced Materials Processes, Environmental Technology, and Nanotechnology – and connect students with leading scientists and technologists in a fun, dynamic atmosphere. Science will change beyond recognition, and the positive impact on the rate of technology growth in the world will be enormous.
As I look back on my time at Virginia Tech I can honestly say it was a great experience for me and it prepared me for adulthood and I truly was challenged and I have fond memories of the school, the campus, the faculty and the experience. This collection facilitates precision discovery with extensive full-text access to a vast range of theoretical and applied science and engineering literature. There are many fine institutions for Engineering studies and the most prestigious would likely be the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
