Pa. school to launch STEM initiative with LANL help

-A A +A

Speaking at the 2011 Pittsburgh STEM Summit, Nick Trombetta, CEO of Pennsylvania’s largest cyber charter school, will discuss his school’s plans to launch a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiative in the Pittsburgh area.
Trombetta is head of the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School. He and three other leading educators are to discuss regional efforts to improve science and math education for grades K-12. The STEM Summit was held Wednesday.
The ultimate aim of PA Cyber’s STEM initiative is to locate centers throughout Pennsylvania “where our students can go and immerse themselves in science and technology,” said Dr. Trombetta. “These centers would create STEM curriculum and activities for the state and nation that are effective, affordable and accessible.”
A pilot project for the STEM initiative will open this year in the Pittsburgh area at Baden, Pa., he said.
Trombetta said the online school has already committed significant resources for programs and curricula designed for young people interested in science or technical careers. A new “school of engineering” within PA Cyber is currently enrolling its first class of high school freshmen. Full-credit high school courses were added this fall in robotics, biometrics and advanced placement biology.
