Connecting 2 Nature through Photography

Southwest PA STEMFEST

August 15-September 26

The goals of this event are to practice the art of observation and to learn about our local biodiversity. Observation is a critical component of the scientific method. Paying attention to everything around us will help us better understand our environment. Many people are familiar with polar bears, penguins, and parrots but less familiar with what exists in our own backyard, park or city sidewalk. If you explore with a sense of curiosity and wonder, you will be amazed at the beauty and the bizarre that surrounds us. Please read about safety and then explore the five projects above.
