TekStart offers children a science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.) play based learning environment to kick start technology education while supporting the PA Learning Standards. The facility is a group home licensed by Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL). We're located in the Lincoln neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh; serving a population of students from low-moderate income families, residing in blighted neighborhoods. These neighborhoods traditionally lack sufficient access and resources to invest in S.T.E.M. education.
Our mission is to kick start technology education in children and their families through engaging them in hands on S.T.E.M. activities
