M3: Plastic (Ages 5-10)
August 18, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Plastic is all around us! Learn about where it comes from, where it ends up, and ways to reuse it so it is less likely to end up in places where it shouldn’t be. Join guest experts from Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse in creating beautiful and useful items from reclaimed plastics.
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.
