Where Entrepreneurship and the Maker Spirit Meet

With making + manufacturing

…at the heart of the Steel City, Pittsburgh has always embodied ingenuity, creativity, and a commitment to hard work.  Within the Greater Pittsburgh EdCorps Community, dozens of student-run businesses are proving this to still be true today.  Across Southwest PA, thousands of students are using entrepreneurship to put their creativity to work, address local challenges, and develop the entrepreneurial mindset. From screen printing shops to handcrafted stuffed animals, classrooms are running real businesses to gain valuable learning experiences and make the world a better place.

EdCorps has given my students and I purpose to our work every day in the classroom. Students think critically, problem solve, and uncover their abilities to do important work. ~Jennifer Salzmann, Pittsburgh City Schools
