PJAS Trip to St. Francis University’s STEAM Day

David Borst
Up in space. PJAS members kicked off the school year by attending a science event at the St. Francis Curry Innovation Center on Sept. 20. Students were able to visit a NASA exhibit showcasing elements of previous and possible future launches.

On Tuesday, Nov. 21, St. Francis University is organizing its thirtieth annual STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Day for high school students. Select Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) members will attend seminars about cryptography, ecology, astronomy and other science-related fields on campus.

“I’m looking forward to having fun, learning things and doing fun activities–if I get the fireworks seminar then I get to blow stuff up,” club president and senior Jacob Ceglar said with a smile. “I enjoy doing the activities they have up there at SFU.”

Ciao! My name is Melissa Krainer, and this is my second year reporting for the Mountain Echo. I’m very excited to be a part of the staff this year as a sophomore! I’ve always been passionate about writing, and I can’t wait to help report on school and community events this year. In my free time, you might find me crocheting, reading, playing the violin or working on math puzzles. I speak both English and German fluently. This is one of my favorite quotes: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi
