Startup Weekend Education – Free Tickets

Most of how we learn hasn’t changed in over 200 years – you’re grandparents likely sat in desks, aligned in rows and did homework out of a textbook just like you. As students, we’re counting on you to reimagine what school might look like.

Join us (for FREE) at Startup Weekend Education (May 13th-15th). SWEdu brings together a wide-range of people committed to making a positive impact on education. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, and build sustainable solutions with the help of experienced coaches and mentors.

Think Shark Tank but it one weekend – at an awesome venue (the 1871 building – the hub of Chicago innovation) and with an amazing network of people (folks who have successfully launched their own education startups in Chicago). Prizes include a trip to the ASU/GSV conference and work space at 1871. To register for free, go to chicagoswedu2016.splashthat.com, select student ticket, and enter the discount code "CPS_STUDENT".
