America has seen remarkable disruptions in education this year, leading to innovations in teaching and learning, as well as new opportunities for families and youth in our communities. From May 15 to 17, 2021, Greater Cincinnati will host the Remake Learning Days virtual festival.
Educators, artists, scientists and creators from across the region share over 100 lessons, activities and demonstrations, both on demand and as interactive sessions. These events will inspire families to spend time learning together.
Remake Learning Days Across America, a celebration of innovation in learning, is in its fifth year. Greater Cincinnati joins 17 other regions in encouraging and supporting families and students.
“I am delighted that KnowledgeWorks and the Catalytic Fund are able to sponsor the Greater Cincinnati Remake Learning Days and celebrate the talent and the many opportunities available to families and children,” said Holly Brinkman, Interim CEO from KnowledgeWorks. âAs more and more organizations came together to share learning opportunities for this event, all of us involved in the festival discovered new organizations and new leaders. It is also an opportunity for families to participate in fun and engaging educational experiences. “
To ensure that more families can participate in the event, learning activity kits filled with supplies for more than 15 of the festival events will be created. These kits will be available free of charge on a first come, first served basis at several locations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
