Summer Institute 2017


Join Us!

The Educurious Summer Institute is an annual gathering of teachers and administrators who want to learn more about how to bring blended and project-based learning into their schools. Join us July 17th- 20th, 2017 at Truman High School in Federal Way, Washington for one of five different 4 day program strands for teachers and an exciting Symposium specifically designed for School and District Leaders.

Leadership Symposium for School and District Leaders: July 12th-14th


The Educurious Symposium for School and District Leaders will provide you with the knowledge you need to understand what rigorous project-based learning is, the “why” behind it, and a plan to get to scale. The overall goal is to develop the necessary know-how for a reform idea, such as rigorous project-based learning, ultimately to spread faster and more effectively through your system. You’ll work with your team and with district teams from around the country who are working on the same change initiative. You will leave with a plan of action for moving forward. Download Agenda
