Many careers today require more tech skills than ever. Pitt’s Community Engagement Center in the Hill District has launched multiple initiatives for school-aged students and adults to boost science and tech literacy in the city.

In Pittsburgh’s Hill District, local organizations are connecting through weekly phone calls to help people and businesses in need. From delivering lunch boxes to a mask donation program, the spirit of community is alive, even while residents are apart.
Students from Pittsburgh’s Hill District put their coding skills to the test to recreate the 1978 game Space Invaders, using a computer program provided by Pitt’s Swanson School of Engineering and the School of Computing and Information. The coding exercise was part of a three-day STEM mini-camp hosted by Pitt’s Hill District Community Engagement Center.
