For Teens/Young Adults

Too cool for school.

How are the galleries at The Warhol as a cool and provocative classroom space? Or how about sketching on the floor of the Museum of Art’s awe-inspiring Hall of Architecture? Or learning about the latest innovations and career opportunities in fields such as robotics and energy? We supply the material and the stimulating environment. The youth of the region do the rest in a batch of programs designed just for teens and young adults.




Attention teens who love science and math! Carnegie Science Center is the destination for a whole slew of competitions just for teens designed to hone your STEM skills, including the i5 Digital Video Competiton, the annual Future City Competition--where you'll design and build a city of the future!--and the spirited Chain Reaction Contraption Contest.

And what are you waiting for? Get involved in the Science Center's best known program for teens: the Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair!

Especially for teen girls: Come hang, in person or online, with other girls age 11-17 through BrainCake, a program of the Science Center. Whether you're looking for advice, ideas about a career, games to play, or somewhere new to hang out with friends, it's all here.

While you're at it, get in on the behind-the-scenes learning! At Carnegie Museum of Natural History, you can learn how to help answer visitor questions - about dinosaurs, the Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt, Hall of African Wildlife, and more - by volunteering as part of its Teen Program.



altA Warhol original, The Factory is a collaborative environment tailored to investigating ideas about art and culture through hands-on experimentation. Design a postcard, vinyl record, or your own t-shirt.  

The Warhol trains student assistants (ages 15 and above) who have a strong commitment to or interest in the arts to create a series of traditional and alternative publications: Urban Interview magazine inspired by Warhol’s Interview, and Youth Philosophy, an untraditional art zine with a multimedia insert. Check out other youth programming at The Warhol.

Carnegie Museum of Art wants to help young people develop their personal vision of the world through classes geared just for them. Check out the museum’s youth classes that include The Art Connection classes for kids in grades 5-9 and high school studio seminars for young adults in grades 10-12.
