HFA, a proud sponsor of the Steam Summit 2017 event, was invited and had attended to the Steam2Work tour that took place the 19th April 2017. The Steam summit is an annual event hosted at the PTC (Pittsburgh Technical College) that invites educators and leadership in non for profit organizations to talk about innovative STEM education practices, learn about how the corporate sites they’re visiting are incorporating STEM into their work practices. EDGE, HFA students and various other representatives of organizations and schools attended this event. The sites we visited were Google, Inventionland, Simcoach Games, The Fab Lab at the Carnegie Science Center, and Uber. We, at EDGE, are honored to have had the opportunity to attend this event and have learned a large deal about the sites we visited and their innovative practices!
