OH WOW! center receives PNC grant

OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology received a $7,221 grant from the PNC Foundation to expand access to quality STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — experiences for preschoolers enrolled in selected units of United Way’s Success By 6 program.

OH WOW! in downtown Youngstown has more than 60 interactive exhibits in which young children can have real-world experiences. For example, in InspireWorks, they can use real tools to make a product of their choice or learn how food travels from farms to the table in the “Kids in the Kitchen” exhibit.

Funding from the foundation will provide access to those educational exhibits for Success By 6 participants.
