Thank you for making Remake Learning Days 2018 a success! Please check back soon for the announcement of 2019 dates.

What is Remake Learning Days?

Remake Learning Days is about giving everyone the opportunity to experience the future of learning, right here in the Pittsburgh region.

The members of the Remake Learning Network create future-ready, hands-on, relevant and engaging educational experiences for kids and their families, caregivers and educators in greater Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and beyond.

To increase awareness of and access to these experiences among all children, parents, families, and communities in our region, Remake Learning launched Remake Learning Days in 2016.

Dubbed “the world’s largest open house of hands-on learning,” Remake Learning Days creates a massive showcase of public events and activities involving hundreds of member organizations each year during the month of May.

Remake Learning Days includes free events that welcome the public into schools, museums, libraries, afterschool programs, community centers, universities, media labs, tech startups, and more.
