The old rules no longer apply.

Our children are tomorrow’s innovators and change-makers. But how can we prepare them to thrive in a rapidly evolving economy, both now and in the future?

Our approach to education must be re-imagined to align with how kids learn, and what they should be learning to invent the future with creativity and compassion.

KID Museum’s Community Conversation on the Future of Learning will explore the science of learning, how it can adapted to our schools, and what success means in the 21st century.

Please join our distinguished panel of industry experts, thought-leaders, and local educators at the forefront of tomorrow’s learning landscape — and be a part of the conversation.
