Broaden your impact in our DMV community!

Join schools, museums, libraries, nonprofits, businesses, community organizations, and other like-minded professionals to help young people wonder, learn, and explore together with Remake Learning Days Across America in the DMV.

It’s easy to participate. Here’s how you can be part of this year’s festival in three easy steps:

Hosting a Remake Learning Days- DMV event in three easy steps

Schedule an event for youth or educators between May 14th – 22nd, 2021.

  • Create/host an event that showcases your organization’s unique experience to our community.
  • Your event can be one you have already planned or standing experiences already on your calendar from your organization.
  • Your event can be in-person, online, or hybrid.
  • Events can be for educators, parents, families, and youth of all ages.
  • Event themes are Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology, Youth Voice, Professional Development.
Quick Tip: these events can be programs you are already planning for springtime! Already existing events qualify as long as they promote creative,  hands-on learning, fall within the festival dates,  and support one or more of the key learning themes


Submit your event through the website. Include the following: 

  1. Name of event and date
  2. Short description of your event
  3. Target age range
  4. Key contact
  5. Choose the theme categories (Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology, Youth Voice, Professional Development)
  6. Event image or logo
Quick Tip: make sure your event description is brief, illustrates what participants will do,  and outlines what people will learn or take away.  Will they gain new skills?  Will it be a make-and-take project? Make participation sound irresistible


Activate your community (spread the word!)

  • Communicate your participation on RLDAA-DMV to your audiences.
  • Provide the RLDAA-DMV team with information on your event to be included in festival promotions.
  • Provide the participants in your event with the RLDAA survey link to give feedback after holding your event.
  • Share pictures with the RLDAA-DMV team.

Quick Tip: Submit your event by Feb. 20, 2022, to be included in region-wide Festival promotion, including paid digital advertising, that will drive participation among kids, families, and educators.

We got our materials into the hands of very invested teachers!”
