Usher in the first of a series of school-space learning tours with Duquesne Elementary School’s Creation Station and Boiler Room. In 2018, Remake Learning will kick-off a new series of free and public tours featuring STEAM Classrooms, Makerspaces, and other spaces dedicated to design, collaboration, and 21st century learning.

Over the past three years, Duquesne Elementary School has had the opportunity to design and innovate two makerspaces; The Creation Station designated for students in grades prek-2 and The Boiler Room for students in grades 3-6. These spaces are designed to foster innovation, promote critical thinking, and engage students in collaborative efforts to build interpersonal communication skills. The lessons and accompanying activities focus on the individual and collective components of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), where students employ technology, mathematical and scientific concepts, reading, and engineering that showcases student understanding and creativity in multiple formats. The teachers utilize the Pennsylvania Science curriculum framework, implementing the Big Ideas, Essential Questions, Concepts, and Competencies to ensure students are engaged in meaningful activities that are necessary for a 21st century education.

Refreshments will be provided. Please contact Ani Martinez, Remake Learning Community Manager, with any accessibility or dietary requests. ani (at) remakelearning (dot) org.
