Welcome to a day of community building and problem solving for D.C. metro area schools. We invite YOU - our frontline educators- to pose your most pressing challenges and/or your best ideas to the community so we can work together to improve education for our kids.

Throughout the day, you will have opportunities to collaborate with innovators from a variety of backgrounds and expand your personal learning network. During hands-on sessions, you will engage in problem solving activities to help you design solutions or materialize ideas that are tailor-made to fit the unique contexts of your school and community.


  • Design a meaningful solution/project working with professionals from a variety of backgrounds
  • Learn innovative techniques to improve teaching and learning
  • Create connections with local innovators
  • Earn eight recertification hours
