We are just starting to plan a 2 day event in Madison for some time in July. To follow up from Jesse's comment, what do you want to see this year?

We have dates and a venue!

The Madison event will be August 14th and 15th and be held in Union South.

Like years past with the GLS, we will be combining the Field Day summit with another event that will focus on games, making and personalized learning.

If you are interested in helping plan this event with Chris Holden, Jim Mathews and myself, I'd love to talk with you. Otherwise, I'll be tapping some shoulders to invite you out and to speak.

More info soon!

I remember in our conversations about another summit while at the previous one, main of you were very helpful in describing some of the criteria by which you might or might not be able to make it there. As this event gets put together, what in how it is framed or put together might make it easier to attend. Does calling it a workshop versus something else make it more/less available for institutional funding, or what other fine points might make a difference?

Also, if you have thoughts about what the summit could be for us, please share. Our previous meetings have been awesome and I'd like to make the next even better.

Fifth statewide Wisconsin Youth summit 2017.
The event will begin at 9. a.m. Please be on time for a full day.A note on parking even though a state wrestling tournament scheduled for the day, there should be plenty of parking options in the area and on UW madison parking lots.
