CCEF supports UPJ STEM Professions Day Trip!

On April 12, 2017, sixteen Central Cambria High School STEM students attended STEM Professions Day at University of Pittsburgh – Johnstown. The purpose of this event is to encourage more students to consider careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The program featured up-to-date information about career paths in the STEM professions, diverse workshops conducted by UPJ’s renowned faculty, and student research projects. The students were able to choose to attend 3 different concurrent presentations that appealed to their individual interests. The students were guests for lunch on campus. It was a great experience for all students involved. The Central Cambria Education Foundation was proud to provide financial support for this event.
