“The arts are the voice of a generation and pop culture is the dialect of its youth.”
Pop Goes the Classroom began as an innovative professional development opportunity designed to equip those who work with children and youth with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to create meaningful learning experiences for students today.
Since its inception, Pop Goes the Classroom has evolved into an initiative that provides support, education and resources to a diverse community. Today, Pop Goes the Classroom provides
- Youth Enrichment Experiences to children and youth through traditional afterschool programs, partnerships with 21st CCLCs and summer day camps .
- provides STEAM integrated curricula and supplies for use in OST and traditional classrooms.
- provides training and technical assistance to OST professionals and traditional educators implementing project based learning and flipped Classrooms.
