About the Playground


The Playground is an interactive space to learn new strategies and engage in hands on activities that can be leveraged to support students’ learning. The space features programming and activities for makers, creators, learners, dreamers, visionaries and most importantly, educators.

The wall-to-wall creative energy in the Playground is stimulated by displays, talks and hands-on presentations.

For frequently asked questions and answers about the exhibition, please review the Playground FAQ.
