Today’s youth have opportunities for learning and specialization like no previous era. From robotics clubs to poetry workshops to real world internships, Remake Learning is opening doors across our neighborhoods to ensure all youth have access to creative and academic opportunities that connect learning and create new pathways to college and career success.

In 2016, Sprout provided support to six teams to create cross-disciplinary, badge-enabled learning pathways during the 2016-2017 academic year. Each team is using Connected Learning principles to help youth engage deeply on a subject as they visit several learning spaces across the region. Explore the links below to learn more about their projects.

Architecture for Civic Engagement

Architecture can be a gateway to interdisciplinary, project-based learning that helps young people develop the skills, knowledge, and dispositions they need to succeed in life and work. The ACE Mentor Program, Assemble, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Mellon University, Fallingwater, and the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation teamed up to create the Architecture Learning Network.
