Weekend @ Workshop – Mar 15 & 16

Posted by The Workshop School on February 27, 2024

Join us for Weekend @ Workshop, a celebration of learning, creativity and innovation featuring staff and students from the Workshop School!

Event Details:

Friday, March 15 @ 6pm: Cocktail Reception and Panel Discussion

Join us for a reception and panel discussion titled Envisioning A Youth-Centered City. We’re asking our guests to think big about what Philadelphia could look like if we centered young people not just in our schools, but in all of our systems, our economy, and our community. It promises an informative, hopeful, and challenging conversation! 

This event will be hosted offsite at The HIVE, 30 S. 15th street (downtown near Dilworth Park). Seating is limited.

Saturday, March 16, 9am-4pm: Weekend @ Workshop

On Saturday morning the real fun begins! Here is a sample of what’s on the schedule:

  • Learn how to take care of your car from our amazing Automotive team.
  • See if you can solve your way out of an escape room designed by our 11th grade students.
  • Dive into storytelling with our 12th grade English students.
  • Learn how to use 3D printers and laser cutters with our Workshop Industries students.
  • Learn how to design and make lamps with our 9th graders.
  • Test your physical fitness by seeing if you can outperform our 12th graders on a series of student-designed tasks.

Along the way, you’ll also be able to hear from Workshop students and staff about what makes Workshop unique, what we have learned from each other, and how the school works behind the scenes.

This event will be held at the The Workshop School, 221 S. Hanson Street in West Philadelphia.
