The 21st Century Kids Program is designed to bring youth from rural populations to Penn State Behrend and provide exposure to opportunities available through post-secondary education. Students participate in hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math workshops taught by Behrend Faculty, tour campus, and experience a college setting. 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.
