Learning Party: Environment!
April 8, 2015 @ 4:00 PM - 6:30 PMFREE
The Environment! What does climate change mean? What’s the benefit of being organic? How green is Pittsburgh? How can I be better at conservation? What are all the ways I can use recycled materials? Can’t wait to learn more about the environment? Join Assemble for a Learning Party on Wednesday, March 11th, anytime between 4 and 6:30pm. Fun for kids, friends, and grown ups! Hands-on learning activities will be led by local makers, scientists, artists, and technologists. All materials provided.
Assemble provides opportunities for neighborhood children to look, learn, and make in an informal educational environment during monthly Learning Parties. The goal of Learning Parties is to make topics ranging from visual art to robotics to biological science accessible, understandable, inspiring, and fun for neighborhood children ranging in age from 6 to 15. Local kids will discover local resources for fun and learning available to them through Assemble and beyond. Learning Party activities are organized as stations, which are facilitated by a team of local experts, education specialists, and volunteers. The events are self-navigated by our drop-in visitors, a combination of kids and parents, who may spend as much time as they like at each station. Assemble offers a variety of inquiry-based, student centered activities ranging from art-making, scientific and technological experiments, conversations with experts, storytelling, and more.
