Remake Learning Days events returning to area

From staff reports

After a challenging year for education, Remake Learning Days Across America is returning this spring in 17 regions – including northwest Pennsylvania – with family-friendly learning events designed to engage caregivers, parents and kids around the country.

In partnership with Riverview Intermediate Unit 6 and other IUs in the region, more than 50 events are planned in the area during the learning festival, which is scheduled May 6-16.

These events are designed for parents and caregivers to learn alongside their kids and offer relevant and engaging educational experiences for youths of all ages (pre-K through high school).

All events are free.

The activities are designed to capture the themes of hands-on learning with art-, maker- and science-themed events and outdoor learning with family and friends.
