Get out your calendar, circle February 25, and rally the kids of all ages!
The nonprofit Education Transformation Alliance is joining with sponsors Free Fun in Austin, Whole Foods Market, and Alt Ed Austin to host the annual Austin Alternative School Fair on February 25, from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Whole Foods Market rooftop plaza.
Check out the event’s Facebook page for updates over the next few weeks.
We like to think we’re doing our part to “Keep Austin Weird” for kids by bringing together highly innovative, creative educators to share information about the number and variety of learning options in our area.
Parents and kids will have a chance to meet with the folks who run schools, enrichment programs, and educational services. The fair is set up on the plaza near the playground and features engaging activities for teens and younger kids, including virtual reality experiences, 3D printing, computer games, a mini nature museum, assorted crafts, as well as movement-based fun like sock poi and flow arts. And of course, there will be healthy food and drinks for sale from Whole Foods.
Alt Ed Austin is proud to sponsor the event again this year. It’s always a chance to talk and share in a relaxed, fun setting. We’re lucky—and more important, our kids are lucky—to have such a caring community of educators.
