DiscoverED kicks off the RLD festivals across Pennsylvania!
On Tuesday, May 4, second grade classrooms across the state of Pennsylvania are invited to virtually swap schools to experience how STEAM and maker pedagogies are thriving in classrooms different from their own. Participating schools will connect virtually, and students will plan, create and iterate their own marble maze design. A live feed of this event will be streamed across schools as we launch Remake Learning Days!
