Each day’s program consists of a discussion of powerful ideas, mini tutorials on-demand, immersive learning adventures designed to challenge one’s thinking, substantial time for project work and a reflection period. This year's Constructing Modern Knowledge Big Night in the City, features an exciting reception at the MIT Media Lab, before you head out and explore the Boston area. Our institute dinner will once again be at an all-you-can-eat Brazilian churrascaria. Participants have access to a library of books, cutting-edge electronics, art supplies, tools, toys, craft materials, and some surprises to support their project-based learning. Register!
