Throughout the school year, 7th and 8th grade students from the Warren County School District and Forest County Schools will visit Penn State Behrend for a day.  The students will tour campus, participate in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) workshops, and eat lunch in the campus dining hall.  This gives them the opportunity to experience a college setting, interact with college students and faculty, and explore the world of STEAM.

These programs are developed in partnership with the Warren/Forest Hi-Ed Council.
