Create Make Learn Summer Institute 2020 Announced

Excited to announce that there's a new twist for the 9th annual Create Make Learn Summer Institute

We're traveling to Southern Vermont. 

We're going Virtual! 

Windham North East has asked to host the institute this year.  (Open to ALL, not just their district)   My commitment to more equitable opportunities for educators in rural Vermont aligned with their goals, so I said "Let's do it".

But then Covid-19 happened.  

So we've moved Create Make Learn to a virtual event with even more options. 

We're also going to cap enrollment to provide an intimate hands on experience perfect for beginners and those with some experience with creating and making.
