Project Dream

A Capital Campaign to Expand Operations for The Citizen Science Lab


A New Home

We envision The Citizen Science Lab’s new home at the MLK site as becoming a vibrant, visible anchor of the revitalization occurring in the Hill District. Having a state-of-the-art STEM laboratory in the community sends a message that our city is not only investing in the youth of the area but also in the neighborhood itself.

Our work will not only increase the participation of underrepresented populations in STEAM,  but will also increase the visibility and connectivity of STEAM organizations throughout Pittsburgh’s Hill District.

New Location Highlights

In addition to our current dynamic lab offerings, highlights of the new location include:

  • The technical capacity to serve as a “Digital Learning Hub” for on-line learning when area students are unable to access the internet at home or in school
  • Increased space to have different program activities occurring concurrently
  • Enhanced food science components, including the creation of a greenhouse and chicken coop to provide organic food to the community
  • Quiet spaces for homework/studying, in addition to a safe place for youth to socialize
  • Space for drone aviation
  • Public art spaces that highlight the scientific achievements of Blacks in STEM
