The Cops & Kids Summer Camp represents a unique experience for Pittsburgh area youth to understand and explore all aspects of policing and public safety.

For one week, campers will experience positive interactions with police officers. The curriculum is designed to enhance your child’s knowledge of public safety, as well as, reinforcing positive decision-making.

It is our objective to encourage campers to start early being responsible for their actions. This year we are focusing on education, keeping them “Promise Ready” during the summer months.

The goal of Cops & Kids is to help build self esteem, self awareness, and a better understanding what it takes to become a good citizen.

The Camp Sessions will be held:

  • July 18-22 – CCAC/Allegheny Campus (Northside)
  • July 25-29 – Duquesne University
  • August 1-5 – University Of Pittsburgh

See the attached flyer and application for more information.

This is a free community event to encourage the general public, students, and others to meet the director of the museum as well as ask Dr. Lamanna questions about his discoveries and experiences as he hunts for dinosaur fossils with a team of experts in Antarctica. Dr. Lamanna will take questions from participants and reporters from the research vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer and projected to the 10′ x 8′ foot high-resolution screen in Forbest Digital Plaza.

They have named this beast Notocolossus gonzalezparejasi.

– May 22

In the new exhibit Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, rare fossils, life-size models, and hands-on interactives bring these ancient animals to life.
