Since being founded in 2010, Pop Culture Classroom has offered workshops, classes, and educational programming at dozens of schools, community organizations, and after-school programs throughout the Front Range. Our exciting and diverse educational workshops and camps—which harness students’ existing interests in comics, movies, television, video games and other pop culture topics—create one-of-a-kind learning experiences for students and their teachers alike.
