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.

Hands On Learning Area
This flexible space within the Playground will feature informal hands on activities throughout the program.

Interactive Displays
Organizations will be set up throughout the space to share their educational approaches and demo their activities.
