Remake Learning Days

Have you heard about Remake Learning Days in Pittsburgh? NO??!! You don't want to miss this. From May 15-26, there will be over 350 events and activities for families happening all over our region. The kick-off is at PNC Park on Monday, May 15 from 3 - 6pm and features activities and refreshments.

Frankly, it's nuts (and bolts) how much stuff is happening during Remake Learning Days. This is from the press release:

  • Across the key themes, there are 89 maker events, 83 arts events, 77 technology events, 40 science events, 30 outdoor learning events, and 27 youth voice events;
  • The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh will host 25 events across its branch system, featuring a robot raceway, virtual reality, Labs workshops for teens, the Labsy Awards Art Show and more;
  • Innovative corporations such as Duolingo, Schell Games, Inventionland and TechShop Pittsburgh will host open houses for the public to gain insights into the latest technology and their work;
  • Many museums and arts organizations will host hands-on learning sessions for youth of all ages, including the Heinz History Center, Carnegie Science Center, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Manchester Craftsmen Guild, and more;
  • Across the Pittsburgh region, 29 school districts are hosting showcases and events for Remake
    Learning Days;
  • There will be 45 professional development opportunities across the region for educators to explore “remake learning” on a deeper level. 
There's so much going on it feels a little overwhelming, but I really love the way the website is organized. First, you choose the category or type of activity. Then you can search for a keyword or by ZIP code to find activities near you. Or you can scroll the entire list of offerings displayed pin-board style with eye-catching photos, easy to read headlines and helpful descriptions.

We have a pretty packed schedule, but there is an open house hosted by Schell Games that looks pretty interesting for my family (we love games) and is happening on a day without other activities.

So what Remake Learning Days events will you attend?
