‘Making’ It in Pittsburgh
Stepping into Assemble is like walking into an explosion of color and creativity. Kids are knitting, creating color wheels, working with tie-dye and electronic light mixers. They are tinkering, painting, soldering and working hand-in-hand with local artists, makers and technologists to build the things they imagine. The unique makerspace is where art and technology unite. Located in Garfield, an underserved neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Assemble has become a creative outlet for kids of all ages. On any given day, kids get to learn from, and create things with, experts in robotics, technology and engineering or painters, filmmakers and musicians.
