Spotlight 2019

Pittsburgh, USA

Educators in the Pittsburgh region are taking risks, reaching higher, and pushing the limits of learning. Find out what we learned from taking a closer look at the education innovations flourishing in the "steel city" in 2019. This Spotlight broke the mold—we couldn't settle on just 10 innovations to highlight, so here you'll find 12 innovations that are impactful in their local context and scalable for education contexts around the world.
Together with The Grable Foundation & Remake Learning

Education Innovation Forged in the Steel City

In 2019, HundrED partnered with the Grable Foundation and Remake Learning to produce the HundrED Spotlight on Pittsburgh, our first Spotlight in North America, to shine a light on the educators and innovators doing extraordinary things to help students in southwestern Pennsylvania flourish.

More than 80 schools, museums, libraries, and community centers in Pittsburgh shared their innovation with HundrED to show how they’re harnessing the power of creativity, ingenuity, and innovation to help children thrive. Together with our partners in Pittsburgh, HundrED identified 12 of the most inspiring innovations in the Pittsburgh region to share with the world. 

The story of each of these innovations is captured in this collection of short video documentaries and in the innovation profiles below, where you'll learn more about their origin and impact, see step-by-step guidance for recreating their approach, and find contact info to get in touch with the innovators.

The HundrED Spotlight on Pittsburgh research report collects these innovations together with a detailed overview of the education ecosystem in Pittsburgh, the areas of strength that make innovation possible there, and the opportunities for change that drive the region’s commitment to helping each and every child can reach their full potential.
