Remake Learning Days Festival Celebrates Hands-On Learning

On May 15-17, 2021, Greater Cincinnati will host the virtual Remake Learning Days festival to inspire families to spend time learning together.  

Educators, artists, scientists and makers from across the region are sharing more than 100 lessons, activities and demonstrations, both on demand and as interactive sessions.  

Remake Learning Days Across America, a celebration of learning innovation, is in its fifth year. Greater Cincinnati joins 17 other regions to encourage and support families and students. 

The festival will provide new connections between the families of Greater Cincinnati and the organizations and resources located here. The virtual events in the festival will be a helpful introduction to the participating artists, teachers, scientists and makers. Families can explore the opportunities they offer and follow up for more if they wish. 

To ensure that more families can participate in the event, learning activity kits filled with supplies for more than 15 of the festival’s events will be created. These kits will be available for free on a first-come, first-served basis at several locations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Find a full list of locations where kits can be picked up at https://remakelearningdays.org/gc/free-activity-kits/.  

During Greater Cincinnati Remake Learning Days, families can find activities and lessons appropriate for children from preschool through 12th grade, all of which can be done remotely. The activities range from arts and crafts, to STEM, outdoor learning and much more. A full listing of events can be viewed at https://remakelearningdays.org/gc/

Remake Learning Days Across America Producer Dorie Taylor hopes that “parents, caregivers and educators across all communities will be inspired by the learning kids are doing alongside their caring adults and think about what they hope to see in their own communities.” 

“There may not be another moment in our lifetimes when educators are thinking as boldly about what education and learning might be than right now. We should embrace these innovations as signals about what’s possible,” said Gregg Behr, executive director of the Grable Foundation and co-chair of Remake Learning. 

Join the virtual Greater Cincinnati Remake Learning Days on May 15-17.
