Fun Afterschool Learning

Are you in 1st – 8th grade? Come hang out with us Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00-6:00 pm.
Want to create a tweeting plant? Build a Battlebot? Test a rocket? Students will complete hands-on STEAM projects exposing them to multiple exciting mediums. Assemble Afterschool is an exploratory afterschool program that introduces students to local artists and makers in their community. Students will be encouraged to create and teach one another through the making process.

Mondays: 5th – 8th grade GIRLS ONLY – Girls Maker Night
Tuesdays: 6th-8th grade (ages 11-14)
Wednesday: 3rd-5th grade (ages 8-10)
Thursday: 1st-2nd grade (ages 6-7)

Each day will be filled with new exploration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math!


This program is offered for FREE. Assemble believes that the 21st Century skills youth learn in our programs should be accessible to everyone. But, if you can afford to make a donation to help us cover our costs, it is greatly appreciated! (The average cost of an afterschool program in Allegheny County is over $100 per week)

If you are interested please email hannah @ assemblepgh . org to register. You can also register when you show up.

We highly encourage parents to ensure that their children can attend most of the sessions as the activities build throughout the month. If your child is only able to attend occasionally, please check out our drop-in program, Saturday Crafternoons, which takes place from 1-3 pm each Saturday at Assemble. We also welcome them to our Learning Parties that happen on the second Wednesday of the month.
