    The University of Scranton received a $10,000 grant from the Robert H. Spitz Foundation to support its STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Math) Activities for School and Community Groups. The grant was funded in 2018.

    The University’s STEAM Activities is an ongoing initiative that connects University resources in the science and arts areas with area children and teens through local school districts, with a focus on the Scranton School District (SSD), and community partner agencies, with a focus on United Neighborhood Centers. The University’s SSD partner school is McNichols Plaza Elementary School in South Scranton.

    Through the initiative, University faculty, staff and students offer STEAM related activities to area children and community groups. Activities take place off-campus, as well as on-campus at the University’s facilities such as The Hope Horn Gallery and Loyola Science Center.
