History of Remake Learning Days
The first weeklong festival was established in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2016 by the Remake Learning network. With support from the Grable Foundation, a Pittsburgh-based grantmaker focused on investments in children, more than 250 hands-on learning activities happened in that region. Since then, the program has evolved into a festival of more than 1,150 activities and events held in May.
