Episode 22: Remaking Learning in Pittsburgh

Tue Feb 27 2018 (01:24:27)

In this episode, members of Pittsburgh's Remake Learning Network share what challenges unite them with other cities who rally for broadening STEM participation, and what challenges set them apart. Remake's own Ani Martinez, Community Manager and operations lead, is joined by members Alaine Allen, Univ. of Pittsburgh, Megan Cicconi, Executive Director of Instructional and Innovative Leadership at Fox Chapel School District, and Liz Whitewolf, Carnegie Science Center's Fab Lab and Technical Education Manager. What does it mean to "build the learning ecosystem" in Pittsburgh? What attempts are being made to add balance to "deserts" of learning opportunity, and how does "access" change when a city is hub for residents in three states?
