Local News

ERIE, Pa. — Students delved into science, technology engineering and math on Monday.

GE Transportation and Penn State Behrend hosted the Fourth Annual STEM Fair at the college’s Junker Center.

More than 1,000 kids explored a variety of demonstrations, which ranged from robots to chemistry experiments. 

Students of all ages said it was a valuable learning experience, including 9-year-old Angel Troutman.

She said, “And like how we got to learn about different types of plastics and we got like a color-changing cup.”

Penn State Behrend junior Hallie Myers, who is studying early childhood education, said young students were presented “complex [information] just at a simpler level for them. So that when they get to high school or college, they’re already familiar with them.”

Guests visited dozens of booths, which featured the college’s departments and organizations, GE and other local companies.
