This event will have exhibits, activities, discussions, and more for community members seeking to learn about the long-term educational and facilities vision for the city's public schools.

In addition to panels, exhibits, and roundtable discussions, there will be food trucks, chess and math tournaments, interactive exhibits created by Lego Education, kids fitness innovators from Reimagine Play, and digital literacy games presented by the Emerson Engagement Lab. We will provide play areas for all ages, Read Boston will have a reading corner, and teens can meet with Teens in Print and members of the BSAC (Boston Student Advisory Council).
