Remake Learning Days Across America is coming to San Diego from April 22 to May 23 as part of a partnership between the San Diego County Office of Education and the Jacobs Institute for Innovation in Education.
The family-friendly festival was created to engage caregivers, parents, and children of all ages with fun, hands-on learning activities.
"We're always excited to give local students opportunities that encourage entrepreneurship and inventiveness to help prepare them for a lifetime of success," said San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold.
Most of the events coming to San Diego County are free and virtual this year, featuring businesses, libraries, museums, and other organizations. They include the science of tortillas, coding interactive Mother's Day cards, and adventures through children's books.
These events are designed for parents and caregivers to learn alongside their kids and offer relevant and engaging educational experiences.
"One of the reasons we became involved with Remake Learning Days is because we value parental involvement at all levels of our children's education," said Dr. Erin English, executive director of Innovation for the San Diego County Office of Education. "Remake Learning encourages parents to learn alongside their children. It also enables our regional business partners to expand opportunities to engage with families by encouraging them to provide meaningful hands-on STEAM and entrepreneur-inspired activities."

The first Remake Learning Days festival was in Pennsylvania in 2016. Since then, it has expanded to 17 regions across the country, including San Diego County.
Remake Learning Days Across America is led by Remake Learning, a network that ignites engaging, relevant, and equitable learning practices in support of young people navigating rapid social and technological change.
