Introducing Families to Ed Tech Learning Tools
through Engaging Play
Part carnival, part scavenger hunt, part education fair for parents and their children in kindergarten through 8th grade, the A’Fair is an interactive, fun-filled event that introduces NYC families to Education Technologies.
What to Expect
The NYC Ed Tech Family Day: A’Fair will include:
• It’s all Fun & Games: Educational too. A scavenger hunt that’s fun for the entire family and Ed Tech Bingo to start the fun. Plus there’s multiplayer demos with multiple chances to win prizes- free and discounted app downloads, Little Bits electronics and toys and games from Jade’s ToyBox.
• STEM, the Arts, Language & Literacy, Mind & Body Health and 21st Century Skills learning stations will allow your child an opportunity to explore his or her personal areas of talent, strength or interest.
• The 2014 Michael Perelstein Memorial Scholarship Fund’s Discover Your Passion Competition in partnership with School Search Solutions presents a showcase of their talented kid winners. Will your child be next?
• With a focus on families, The Ed Tech A’Fair allows parents with children in kindergarten through 8th grade an opportunity to explore with like-minded families and peers – innovative new tools and student projects that inspire.
