In an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, all Assemble in-person events are canceled until further notice.
In the meantime, we have launched Virtual Assemble as a digital hangout for our Assemble Afterschool groups to continue to meet and DIY-together.

Calling all after-school artists, budding engineers,
and young makers!

Assemble Afterschool is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) program that gives kids of all ages a space to learn through making, testing out wild ideas, and building a better future. Each week students explore the wonderful world of STEAM with hands-on activities and dreaming up creative inventions. They’ll also get special visits from local artists, makers, and technologists who will share their passion and talents with the group!

We encourage parents to ensure that their children can attend most of the sessions as the activities build throughout the year.

  • Mondays Girls’ Maker Night, Grades 5-9), 4-6pm
  • Tuesdays (Grades 6-8), 4-6 pm

PROGRAM FEES

Assemble Afterschool is FREE! Assemble believes that the 21st Century skills youth learn in our programs should be accessible to everyone! If you are able to make a donation to help us cover our costs, it is greatly appreciated! (The average cost of an after school program in Allegheny County is over $100 per week).

AT HOME ACTIVITIES

In an effort to keep our afterschool groups feeling connected during this time of social distancing we are limiting our Virtual Assemble sessions to the same grade groupings as Assemble Afterschool. However, we aren’t going to stop you from doing these activities at home whether you have kiddos or not!

Check out these activities from Assemble teachers.
