On March 5 and 6, WNET.org hosts the 2010 fifth annual Celebration of Teaching & Learning. In honor of this event, on March 4 the Empire State Building will shine with the program’s colors – red, blue, and yellow.
A prominent educator once dubbed the Celebration as the “World’s Fair of Education.” Our fifth anniversary will focus on the theme of Creativity and brings experts and content from the areas of English Language Arts, Instructional Technology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Social Studies and Whole School Issues.
Throughout the two days, Celebrants will experience four distinct learning environments through our six plenary sessions, nearly 40 Featured Speaker sessions, over 100 hands-on “In the Classroom” workshops, and two filled exhibitor halls featuring the latest in educational tools, interactive events and book signings.
The Celebration is perhaps best known for its remarkable Keynote Speakers, men and women who are at the very top of their fields and whose insight will raise your expectations for your profession and for yourselves. Past notable speakers have included UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall, Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt, world-renowned autistic scholar Temple Grandin, MacArthur Genius Award-winning environmental pioneer Majora Carter, and many more.

WNET.org would like to thank the Empire State Building for this special lighting.
