Where can you create far-out sounds using electronic instruments, go behind the scenes inside an Aquaponics Greenhouse, make toys for homeless pets, and explore the stars, planets and constellations in the sky with astronomers — all for free?

This is just the tip of the iceberg for what’s in store during the 2018 installment of Remake Learning Days.

Packed with more than 270 events — most of them free — over nine days, the third annual series will activate neighborhoods all across southwest Pennsylvania and West Virginia with hands-on, technology-infused learning, making and doing.

Parents, families and kids are invited to experience “the world’s largest open house for the future of learning,” with innovative events and activities at a wide array of sites, including schools, museums, libraries, gardens, parks, startups, universities, recreation centers and more.

Inclusive and welcoming, Remake Learning Days has an activity, idea or a project to spark wonder in learners of all ages, with exciting events organized around seven themes: Arts, Maker, Outdoor, Science, Technology, Youth Voice and Professional Development.

New this year is a recognition of Teacher and Community Champions, as well as special events based in Homewood, Hazelwood, the Hill District and the Northside.

Remake Learning Days kicks off May 17 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center as part of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
