Norwin will once again participate in “Remake Learning Days,” a national educational non-profit organization that brings together innovative people and organizations. Remake Learning aims to transform teaching and learning so that students are prepared for their future careers. Last year, nearly 200 community members attended and participated in learning during Norwin’s stop on the “Remake Learning Days Tour.” The Norwin School District was also a featured school in the 2022 Remake Learning Days Across America national video.
Known as the region’s “largest open house of hands-on learning”, Remake Learning Days spans the month of May with hundreds of events held throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania to promote STEM education.
The organization connects business leaders, community leaders, corporate sponsors, educational foundations, and schools to support student learning in computer science, STEM/STEAM, maker learning, and other future-focused areas.
This year, the district will host Remake Learning Days at Norwin High School on Thursday, May 11, 2023.
The District will feature 9 events registered involving individual schools that will host interactive STEM/STEAM activities for students, families, and the general public to enjoy. Presentations will include Coding Charm Creation, Weird Zoo, Drone Obstacle Course, and more! Additionally, classrooms in the high school will be open for guests to see student work on display and to tour instructional spaces that engage students in STEM/STEAM-related learning.
Through Remake Learning Norwin educators received a total of $1,400 in grants to enhance participants’ interactions with STEM. Additional materials will be purchased so that participants can be fully engaged. These items will include JIMU robots, Makedo tools, obstacles for drones, and unplugged coding materials. Participants in Remake Learning at Norwin High School can join a scavenger hunt to guide them through the events. All who attend will receive a Norwin keepsake made especially for this event by Norwin’s own Castle Production Lab.
The STEM Lead Teachers at each school are coordinating this event under the direction of their principals, Mrs. Laura Swick, and Mr. Jared Schultz.
