About Remake Learning Days

Remake Learning Days Across America is a celebration of innovative experiences and opportunities for youth to develop their sense of creativity, perseverance and curiosity. The festival features events and activities hosted by a variety of organizations, such as schools, museums, libraries, after school organizations, early child care centers, universities, media centers, tech startups and more.  These experiences are designed to be relevant and engaging for youth of all ages and their families, caregivers and educators. The majority of events are free and may be presented virtually or in person.

Events are organized by different learning themes such as: Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology and Youth Voice. In addition, there are Professional Development sessions for school, out-of-school, child care and non-traditional educators. This spring, families and youth will be able to search events by  date/time, location, learning theme, age group (pre-K through high school) and more on the Kansas city page of the Remake Learning Days Across America website.
