Founded in 2011, Assemble is a nonprofit organization and community space for arts and technology education located in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood. At our core, our mission is to build confidence through making. We do so by uniting communities of artists, technologists, makers, and learners alike.

We envision diverse neighborhoods of empowered people who create, connect, learn, and transform their surroundings together. By creating approachable opportunities for children to engage with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) based activities.

Our Approach

Assemble’s hands-on S.T.E.A.M. curriculum promotes curiosity, problem-solving, discussion, and makes connections between S.T.E.A.M. and the everyday. Assemble works with teachers to put lessons into action. Our existing curriculum is designed to support teachers in the classroom by matching the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) K–12 science content standards. This three-dimensional approach allows us to collaborate directly with existing curriculum and in creating new lesson plans when needed.

Assemble Your Semester

We recognize that the 2020-2021 school year is going to be different for everyone. For the safety of our students and staff, Assemble Off Site programs will be limited to online learning. Assemble educators will tailor the program to the schedule requirements of individual classes as needed during school closures. 

To request Assemble programs or to request more information about aligning with specific curriculum please email Ja’Sonta Roberts, Off-Site Programs Manager, ja’ or call 412-661-6111.
