Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge/Remake Learning Days Festival May 2-22, 2024


The Remake Learning Days festival takes place across Pennsylvania May 2 – 22, 2024. A variety of organizations host free events for all age groups and provide hands-on learning opportunities.  Participating organizations include libraries, schools, tech centers, museums, play spaces, community centers and more.

Did you know that 91% of STEM jobs in Pennsylvania will require some form of a post-secondary credential? Participating in hands-on learning is one way to learn STEM and employability skills.  The STEM career tree has many branches, and you may explore one at the Remake Learning Days festival.

Did you ever think that creating an invention, learning to code, or planting a garden builds employability skills?  Activities like learning how to fly a drone, marketing a product, and helping your community are a foundation to your future career pathway!

Events listed under Career Ready PA qualify for the Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge.  Students who participate will earn a Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge badge.  Career Ready PA will also award a banner to schools with over 100 artifacts.

After the event, students will need to complete the artifact survey on the Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge page.  This survey will be shared with your school so you can earn your badge and get career portfolio credit for the Backpack Challenge!
