Drive-in movies are back! The City of Pittsburgh is getting in on the act, with bimonthly free movie showings at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium parking lot. Reserve a spot to see “A League of Their Own” June 27 and check out the schedule of screenings the rest of the summer.
Everyone needs to recharge in such uncertain times, but the social movement taking place in the streets around the world shouldn’t be waited out. Still not sure how to “do the work” and make sure your workplace culture is a welcome one?

The latest from Technical.ly’s Pittsburgh coverage focuses on how public service-oriented tech outfits are faring and adapting during the pandemic. Read on to learn how Honeycomb Credit, 412 Food Rescue and other local orgs are helping the community in this difficult time.
SpaceX has gotten all the attention lately regarding U.S. exploration of the final frontier, but close by Carnegie Mellon University researchers are helping develop the first robotic moon rover from the U.S. (China and Russia have already done it).
Nonprofit Neighborhood Allies has helped secure 1,000 Pittsburgh families with high-speed internet access through Comcast after it arranged a donation of 1,000 laptops for students to continue their classwork under quarantine.
