September 12th 4:30pm-7:30pm Assemble News- A Learning Party
Are you interested in what's going on in your neighborhood? Want to document it using words, art, and video? Join us for an AssembleDaily News Learning Party on Wednesday, Sept. 12th and be part of a news-making extravaganza! Learn about the history of your neighborhood and tell others your neighborhood's latest news. Engage in fun, hands-on activities led by local artists, journalists, newsanchors, and more! Fun for kids, friends, and grown-ups! All materials provided. This project is supported in part by Spark, a program of the Sprout Fund.

Assemble provides opportunities for neighborhood children to look, learn, and make in an informal educational environment during monthly Learning Parties. The goal of Learning Parties is to make topics ranging from visual art to robotics to biological science accessible, understandable, inspiring, and fun for neighborhood children ranging in age from 3 to 8. Local kids will discover local resources for fun and learning available to them through Assemble and beyond. Learning Party activities are organized as stations, which are facilitated by a team of local experts, education specialists, and volunteers. The events are self-navigated by our drop-in visitors, a combination of kids and parents, who may spend as much time as they like at each station. Assemble offers a variety of inquiry-based, student centered activities ranging from art-making, storytelling, scientific and technological experiments, conversations with experts, storytelling, and more. This project supported in part by Spark, a program of The Sprout Fund.
