PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – With many children still learning remotely and online, local groups are banding together to give them the opportunity to learn something to learn.
On Saturday, Leadership Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Science Center, and the Best of the Batch Foundation teamed up for the STEM Maker Boot Camp to give kids the opportunity to use 3D printers, laser cutters, and other technology.
“We’re trying to create more opportunities for children, especially in this time of distance learning, and right now it’s important for kids to have more hands-on experience, and hopefully that’s what we offer here today,” said Charlie Batch, former Steelers player and founder the Best of the Batch Foundation.
The organizers hope that the event on Saturday also helped the children increase their interest in science.
