New STEM education facility at Carnegie Science Center targeted to open in 2018

PPG and the PPG Foundation recently announced contributions to Carnegie Science Center of Pittsburgh totaling $7.5 million. The largest donation in the center's history is earmarked for a new building that will be named the PPG Science Pavilion.

Scheduled for completion in 2018, the PPG Science Pavilion will house science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning labs; a two-story, 14,000-square-foot exhibitions gallery allowing for large touring exhibitions; PointView Hall, a conference and event space overlooking the city skyline; and new, expanded STEM education programs. With nine classrooms including a wet lab, the PPG Science Pavilion will enable Carnegie Science Center to offer more programs for children and adults, such as day camps for students and professional-development programs for teachers.

PPG COLORFUL COMMUNITIES Project brings color to a local park and playground in Switzerland at Rolle Castle Park


We recently completed another COLORFUL COMMUNITIES™ project in Rolle, Switzerland, that brought color to a local park and playground used by area residents and tourists visiting Rolle Castle..

The project brought together more than 30 PPG employees to volunteer for a day revitalizing the park and playground. PPG provided about $15,500, as well as about 110 liters (29 gallons) of SEIGNEURIE GAUTHIER® paints. The city of Rolle served as project partner.
 
Volunteers refreshed the paint and created a mural on the exterior of a park building. Swings and other playground equipment also received a fresh coat of paint, and a colorful hopscotch now adorns a park pathway.
 
“PPG is committed to protecting and beautifying the communities in which it operates, and we are pleased to help ensure residents and tourists have a colorful experience when they visit this park and playground that are within walking distance of Rolle Castle and our European headquarters,” said Jean-Marie Greindl, senior vice president, global architectural coatings and president, PPG EMEA.
