About this event

Southern Huntingdon County School District is located in a rural area of southcentral Pennsylvania. The school district includes 12 boroughs and townships. The districts’ communities include an approximate population of 8,000 people, and the schools educate about 1,380 (mostly Caucasian with few minority) students per school year. The school district's community is in the lower 30th percentile of wealth measurement in the state. The limited industries in the community include the Woodland Retirement Home (skilled nursing care facility), Southern Huntingdon County School District (elementary and secondary public schools), Community State Bank of Orbisonia (banking), Interforest Corporation (mill working), and Sandy Ridge Market LLC (grocery retailer). Southern Huntingdon County School District offers a kindergarten to 12th grade program for students of ages 5 to 21. In that program, students have opportunities in traditional academic content areas, online courses, career technical programs, cyber/charter programs, and extra-curricular activities.

We want to breakdown stereotypes related to STEAM, to challenge all children to be their best, and show the connection to STEAM and our rural community. Through hands on activities, children will be encouraged to see first hand, how science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics play a pivotal role in real world situations.
