Sixth Grade Students Experience STEAM Day at Penn State Shenango
WFMJ.com News
Penn State Shenango and the Sharon City School District partnered up to provide the second annual STEAM Day on November 21, 2016. STEAM day is a unique experience offered to over 150 sixth grade students in the Sharon City School District. The acronym, STEAM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, is part of a larger movement to include the arts and creativity within the typical STEM fields.
As part of STEAM Day, Penn State Shenango faculty provided hands-on STEAM activities for the students to foster excitement and interest in the STEAM fields. This day provided a unique opportunity for the middle school students to learn in a college classroom and to visit a college campus that is in their own community. Students spent an entire school day on the Shenango Campus exploring hands-on activities, including DNA- Molecules of Life, Chemistry, Building a Big Sculpture, Synthia’s Den, Magic in Math, Bacteria: The Dark Truth, and a class on the heart and CPR.   The daylong event included a treat that Penn State students and fans know all too well, Penn State Berkey Ice Cream.

  • Cyber Charters: The $450 million scam on taxpayers

    PCCY website December 16, 2016

    With school districts stressed by PA’s inadequate education funding, they must make sure every penny is spent wisely.  Cyber charter schools, however, are a huge cost to districts and wisdom doesn’t factor into the equation.  School districts spent $450 million last year on cyber charter schools. The state’s cyber charter sector – the second largest in the country – continues to grow as does the tremendous amount of money that school districts must pay to cybers. In southeast Pennsylvania alone, the tab for cyber charters was over $132.5 million – a $42 million increase in the past five years.  If cyber charter schools were a sound educational investment, maybe they’d be worth the millions spent. But PA’s cyber charter schools have consistently been among the lowest performing in the state, with 90% of them languishing in the bottom fifth of schools statewide last year. No cyber school has ever met the state performance standards set in 2013.

    They waste tax dollars, ‘upload’ funding out of every school, and districts still have to pay them.
