Remake Learning Days
May 6, 2021 - May 16, 2021
Remake Learning Days Across America (RLDAA) returns this spring in 17+ regions including Pittsburgh, with family-friendly learning events designed to engage caregivers, parents and kids around the country.
Launched in Pittsburgh in 2016, RLDAA is a festival of events celebrating learning innovation that will be hosted in person and virtually between April 22 – May 23 by a variety of organizations – from schools, museums, libraries, community hubs, tech startups and more. These events are designed for parents and caregivers to learn alongside their kids and offer relevant and engaging educational experiences for youth of all ages (pre-K through high school). The majority of events are free.
More than 160 in-person and virtual events in the Pittsburgh region will take place May 6-16 as it celebrates its 5th anniversary of the festival. A pre-festival kickoff event involving nearly 1,000 second graders throughout Pennsylvania is planned for May 4 with discoverED. Students will virtually swap schools and engage in a marble maze activity.
Families can search events by six learning themes: arts, maker, outdoor learning, science, technology and youth voice. There are also professional development sessions for educators. Because many of these 800 events nationwide are virtual, families worldwide can join in events happening anywhere. There will also be in-person options. Events include learning about the science of flight, telling stories in a cartoon workshop, discovering nature at an outdoor scavenger hunt, STEM family festivals and exploring career paths of making animation and virtual reality games at a tech company.
For parents, these events are an opportunity to engage in learning alongside their children, something researchers at the Global Family Research Project (GFRP) have found has tangible benefits. Data gathered during previous RLDAA festivals showed that while all children benefit from hands-on STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts and maker) learning, those who learn alongside parents and other caregivers are more likely to succeed academically, more likely to take advanced STEAM courses and more likely to pursue STEAM-related careers.
