Altoona Has Hustle STEM Squad Fundraiser

In the 1970s and 1980s, Altoona’s slogan was “Altoona has hustle.” In the spirit of innovation and growth, Catalyst Space is bringing Hustle back to the Altoona region.

This shirt is being sold as part of a fundraising effort for Catalyst Space’s STEM Squad. The STEM Squad is a group of kids between grades 6–12 that focus on technology and robotics. Each year the STEM Squad participates in the BotBall competition, an educational robotics competition hosted by a number of large, well-known organizations.

100% of proceeds will go towards the STEM Squad.
