The third floor of the Pittsburgh Project buzzes with excited energy. In the art room, middle school students hack ugly sweaters to create a holiday quilt, complete with loud plaids and glittery buttons. Around 4pm, they migrate down the hall to the computer room, settling in for a session with the Remake Learning Digital Corps.
The Remake Learning Digital Corps is a project of the Sprout Fund in Pittsburgh. The project came out of the Connected Learning initiative originally sparked with MacArthur Foundation funds. Today in the Pittsburgh area there are after-school programs focusing on programming (Scratch), robotics (Hummingbird Duo), web design, and digital literacy.
