Hive teens are reinventing summer learning throughout Pittsburgh. They’re invading museums, taking over parks, hacking the web, turning libraries inside out, making their own spaces, and energizing life in their communities. It’s Hive Days of Summer and learning will never be the same.
From May to August, Hive Pittsburgh will partner with projects and organizations working to remake learning in the Pittsburgh region by hosting dozens events and drawing thousands of youth and families from across Allegheny County to channel their energy and enthusiasm and illuminating the most awesome opportunities our region provides.
When schools close their doors for summer, Hive Pittsburgh will be there to ensure the continuity of learning. Hive Days of Summer programs will provide teens with opportunities to develop necessary 21st century skills and engage in learning that encourages them to explore their interests, create their own creative works, and share what they make with their peers.
