Community Engagement and Special Events


NETL understands the value of STEM education in our local communities. We strive to partner with other organizations to provide hands-on learning experiences for students, teachers, and the general public.


Carnegie Science Center
Since its installation in 2010, NETL’s Energy Zone has been one of the most popular stops at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Science Center. Participants can create their own laser design, generate electricity, connect wires to power circuits, and even test their knowledge with the energy quiz game!
