Since 2015, The Citizen Science Lab is proud to serve as a partner to the residents of Pittsburgh’s Hill District. We provide free services for the Hill District through our partnerships with Miller African Centered Academy, Pittsburgh Milliones (UPrep), The University of Pittsburgh Community Engagement Center, and other Hill community organizations.
While The Citizen Science Lab has moved our physical location out of the Energy Innovation Center, the organization has still maintained a significant presence in the Hill District in order to continue our outreach to Hill residents. We are also pleased to announce that the Lab will be opening a new permanent home in the Hill District in 2024! We want to thank all of our partners who are making this possible (including you!), so please check out our DreamFest page for more information!
TCSL also actively recruits volunteers, staff and board of directors from the rich neighborhoods of the Hill District community. If you know of someone who is interested in learning more about our work, please have them contact us.
