As kids and families look for ways to reconnect with their communities and tap into meaningful in-person activities, Remake Learning Days Across America (RLDAA) returns this spring to Northwestern PA and 16 other regions across the country, with events designed to inspire active learning.
In partnership with Midwestern IU IV, Northwest Tri-County IU, Riverview Intermediate Unit, Seneca Highlands IU, ARIN IU, and various community event hosts, Northwestern PA will host more than 100 events during this learning festival from now through May 23.
At a time when parents, educators, and caregivers are making summer plans to fill gaps in children’s academic and social experiences, the national festival of over 1,000 events celebrating learning innovation taps into the dynamic programming of a variety of partner organizations from local schools, museums, libraries, community hubs, tech startups and more.
The local area festival of events features six learning themes arts, maker, outdoor learning, science, technology, and youth voice.
The festivals include the following events:
– Worm Composting at Quiet Creek Herb Farm and School in Brookville;
– Family Learning Day at the Clarion Farmers Market in Clarion; and
– Serve Beautifully – Pine Springs Pottery is an on-demand virtual event.
“This is a great way to elevate our community partners. Local libraries, community learning centers and studios, museums, and schools, are all doing great things and engaging students in hands-on learning events.
During Remake Learning Days we get to highlight that innovation and become a connected community helping spark new interests which could potentially develop into a life-long passion and a possible career path for our youth,” said Kelsi Wilcox Boyles, spokesperson of Remake Learning Days of Northwestern PA.
