Fun Afterschool Learning

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

Tuesdays 6th-8th grade (11-14yrs old)
Wednesday 4th-6th grade (9-11yrs old)
Thursday 1st-3rd grade (6-8yrs old)

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

Details

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)

Assemble Afterschool is limited to 15 students. 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 1-4pm each Saturday at Assemble. We also welcome them to our Learning Parties that happen on the second Wednesday of the month.

About the Lead Instructor: Julia Brown is an experienced Assemble instructor. She is also a Remake Learning Digital Corps teacher and has experience ranging from analog making to Arduino programing. Throughout the Spring, guest experts such as practicing scientists, artists, and technologists will also visit to aid in career connections.

Assemble Afterschool is generously supported by The Jack Buncher Foundation.
