Summer 19 Blog

Summer STEAM Camps Spotlight Info

We asked organizations in the city of Pittsburgh to share the different summer programs they will be offering in 2017. During the summer we will share weekly spotlights featuring different summer opportunities. This week, we are featuring, Assemble, as they share how children and families can have a FUN summer with lots of learning.

Assemble is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering learning and creativity. Assemble connects artists, technologists, and makers adults and kids through galleries, events and workshops. These community gatherings focus on teaching STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) principles to individuals of all ages. Their Summer STEAM Camps begin June 19th for children ages 6-13. See below for more information.
