This year long program is a collaboration between the WQED TV Network and multiple community organizations, to bring at-home education to underserved families.
Started over a decade ago, the Inquire Within show is one of WQED’s most well-established programs aired throughout southwestern Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, northern West Virginia, and western Maryland. The local TV show features impactful out-of-school programming designed to encourage family engagement and the love-of-learning through hands-on activities. In partnership with 34 neighborhood libraries, Inquire Within provides a supportive, community-focused library network with access to PBS Kids educational resources focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), early literacy skills, and social-emotional learning (SEL). With qualitative and quantitative measures of success, the WQED team continually builds its program to increase community impact and comprehension each year.
With 11,000+ clients located in over 110 countries, Apex International is the world’s largest anilox manufacturer. Operating 7 manufacturing facilities around the globe, Pennsylvania USA is home to the company’s North American headquarters. As a global manufacturing leader, Apex understands the importance of STEM education and its impact on continuous improvement and product innovation.
“When looking for ways to give back to our local community, we couldn’t think of a better way than to support this awesome educational program for local kids and families. Skills in STEM will always be important in manufacturing and the Inquire Within program keeps kids engaged in this field with fun, challenging and collaborative programs. That is something we are proud to stand behind," says Farrah Nuzzo, Global Marketing Coordinator.
