This summer, from June 26th to July 20th, students from Steelton-Highspire High School and the Commonwealth Charter Academy were exploring programs within Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. Students attended four weeks of programming on Harrisburg University’s Campus to learn about healthcare with our partners UPMC and Penn State Hershey College of Medicine. The students are members of Steel-High’s True Colors program and the Neighboring Academy. Students were also interested in programming with a strong interst to learn about Virtual Reality applications, advancement in Biotechnology, IT careers with NuPaths and the ever-changing Advanced Manufacturing.
