There's a lot to share and it's all connected. If you want some background on the purpose of this playbook, and tips on how to use it, read this chapter.

If you're inspired by what you find in this playbook, but unsure how to start Assembling on your own, fear not! We're here to help through:

👩🏾‍🏫 Professional Development for Educators: Got a group of teachers interested in STEAMy maker learning? We offer professional development sessions ranging from 1-hour inspirations to full-week intensives. Let us know if you're interested in earning continuing education credits and we'll see what we can do.

🏃🏾 Experiential Learning Workshops: Assembling isn't just for teachers and students. Tech developers, product managers, experience designers, and anyone else working at the intersection of creativity and technology can ramp up their Assembling abilities in these 1- to 2-hour sessions.

🧩 Custom Consultation: Dreaming up some ways to refresh your space? Thinking it's time to redesign your program? Working on a lesson plan or maker activity? We can help you make it more spectacular!

We're also just here to talk if you've got some questions or ideas! Contact Nina at nina@assemblepgh.org to get the conversation started.
