2010 Carnegie Science Awardees Announced

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Carnegie Science Center announced the winners of its 2010 Carnegie Science Awards, sponsored by Eaton Corporation.

Carnegie Science Center established the Carnegie Science Awards program in 1997 to recognize and promote outstanding science and technology achievements in western Pennsylvania. Celebrating its 14th year, the Carnegie Science Awards have honored the accomplishments of more than 250 individuals and organizations that have improved lives through their commitment and contributions in science and technology.

The Carnegie Science Awards program helps fund Science Center exhibits and educational programs that reach thousands of young people to broaden their perspective about careers in the fields of science and technology," said Ron Baillie, Henry Buhl, Jr. Co-Director of Carnegie Science Center. "And through our Science Connections mentoring program, many of the awards recipients engage young people in the real-world practice of the sciences."

"Each year the Carnegie Science Awards shines the spotlight on extraordinary researchers, entrepreneurs, and educators working in science and technology fields," said Ann Metzger, Henry Buhl, Jr. Co-Director of Carnegie Science Center. "Our region generates amazing talent and cutting-edge technology and advances in science-related industries. The Awards program recognizes the best and the brightest the region has to offer."
