Looking for something for your summer Saturday afternoons? M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 5-10 to get to know the material world around them!

Materials, Media, and Me (M3) uses an educational approach known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). STEAM-based learning explores the similar ways that scientists, makers and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.

M3 classes highlight light, paper, fabric, electronics, recycled materials, cardboard,  light and code. Students will explore the properties of the materials with the instructors – How does it bend? How can you attach it to another material? What can I make with this? – before planning their own project. At the end of the class, students will have a take-home creation to share with the group.
