students at a GECKO program

GECKO, short for “Green Environmental Challenge for Kids Outreach,” is a new STEM outreach program that enables Penn State New Kensington students to bring science lessons to local K-8 students.

Thanks to a grant from the Buhl Foundation, Penn State New Kensington students visit local classrooms, lead a hands-on demonstration at each, and leave students with a small trinket related to the lesson.

So far, classes in Armstrong, Allegheny and Westmoreland counties have enjoyed these interactive STEM lessons
