One-day field trip for students in 5th through 8th grade. Students attend 3 sessions led by professionals in the community and experience creative thinking beyond the classroom.
CreativeCon 2020 will take place on Thursday, January 9th at the University of Minnesota Ted Mann Concert Hall.
We are thrilled that this change in venue will provide the following benefits to your schools and students:
- More sessions due to increased capacity at the U of MN.
- Opportunity for sessions to be led by University of Minnesota faculty and students.
- The January date will give teachers more time to identify students who will benefit from this opportunity.
- Students will experience an energizing opening performance/keynote in addition to three interactive breakout sessions.
Things that will remain the same:
- CreativeCon is offered to 5th through 8th graders
- Ticket-based materials and communication will remain the same.
- The schedule is the same.
- Students will still explore creativity and learn that it is a skill that can be practiced and strengthened, that it is necessary for higher education and all careers and is an essential part of problem solving.
Registration for the 2020 CreativeCon will be posted here
