A student-run organization founded as part of Penn's involvement in New America's Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN), PIT@Penn aims to facilitate discourse between Penn students and engineers, scientists, technologists, and policy leaders. As part of the university-wide initiative, the organization hopes to draw students toward research and career opportunities in the public interest technology sector. Last fall, we hosted a biology-themed fireside chat and a skill share on scholarly writing and civid tech! Look out for similar programming in the spring!
