This year’s STEM Season Pittsburgh kicks off this August through October 30, 2021 featuring various companies to educate and celebrate Pittsburgh leading the way into the future of STEM education and careers.

KDKA-TV, in partnership with CGI founded STEM Season, as an annual tribute of Pittsburgh’s dedication to STEM, not only within the City of Pittsburgh but the communities, and the organizations that operate within it and around it. The foundation of the present and future is built on Science and Technology.

Now more than ever, it is important to educate and guide our society about STEM education and careers to keep us moving forward. During the tribute to STEM Season, we highlight various businesses and organizations that are driving us forward with their STEM initiatives, as well as educate for future generations. Through a community campaign, we hear updates on what is ahead and how what’s happening in Pittsburgh is affecting the region and the world.

Through community outreach, students are introduced to STEM-related jobs through interaction with STEM professionals. Students learn how concepts and essential STEM skills apply to the work environment. In addition, Technology and Innovation giants from across the country have been setting up shop in Pittsburgh. With the number of global tech companies and local start-ups spreading across the city, Pittsburgh has undeniably developed into an “East Coast Silicon Valley.” We are the future!

KDKA-TV, Williams, Verizon and The Boys & Girls Club of Western Pa team up to bring you STEM FEST on October 11.  The program will air from 9a-10am on KDKA-TV and 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. on WPCW-TV. Also, catch it live streaming on KDKA.com.
