M3: Electricity (Ages 5-10)
July 7 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
If you’re a young tinkerer or have a knack for hacking, come explore circuits and electricity through a simple LED project! Our friends from Hack Pittsburgh will show us how electricity flows and a few of the many ways we can use it. See some of Hack Pittsburgh’s exciting circuitry projects, play around with bread boards, and make your very own color changing, light-up wearable!
HackPGH is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization that allows members of the community to come together and share skills and tools to pursue creative projects. Inspired by the human desire to create, innovate, and re-imagine the world around us, our organization provides low-cost tools, technologies, and platforms that allow for more rapid and efficient designing, prototyping and fabrication. For nearly a decade, HackPGH has helped people of all ages and backgrounds to bring their ideas to life. We are increasingly seeing our members take on challenges both locally and globally, using their knowledge and skills to improve their lives and the lives of others in their communities.
M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 5-10 to get to know the material world around them! M3 uses an educational approach known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). STEAM-based learning explores the similar ways that scientists, makers and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.
