What and Why
The vision for the Innovation Expo is to create sparks of imagination, promote innovation happening in and around our school district, inspire students and families to be creative, and have fun doing it! There’s a superhero inside every one of us! Come find it at the Innovation Expo!
The Innovation Expo is all about sparking ideas! We want participants to be inspired by our speakers and have a chance to dive into our interactive booths. This is an opportunity for our community to see our students in action, find out about local projects, and see what inspires others.
This event is for our South Bay community! We look forward to seeing you!
