Chicago Learning Days

Join Us for Chicago's innovative family learning festival!

May 19 - 22, 2022

Chicago Learning Days (previously Remake Learning Days CHI) returns for its third year as our city's hands-on family learning festival.

The Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX), Local Lead Partners—WTTW Kids, Project Exploration, Chicago Public Schools Family and Community Engagement, Truman College, and Roosevelt High School—and Event Hosts will turn Chicago into an open house learning laboratory online and in-person. We will feature fun and free events for youth of all ages at which families will experience making, new technology, art workshops, science experiments, student films, outdoor learning, and more!

For more information on how to find events, check out the My Chi. My Future website (, the local hub for participants to add and find events.

Chicago Learning Days will be focused on our region but connected to a national conversation with partners like Remake Learning Network, PBS KIDS and Digital Promise, Common Sense, Leading Heroes, and Noggin. Thank you to all our Event Hosts—without your year around work Chicago Learning Days CHI would not be possible.

Special thanks to our generous supporters for 2022! We are incredibly grateful to our Lead sponsor: Allstate, our Changemaker sponsor: Wintrust; Innovator Sponsor: The Field Foundation and The Chicago Community Trust; and Maker level supporters Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois and Blue Door Neighborhood Center.


Imagine Chicago youth and families exploring hands-on learning online and in-person at neighborhood hubs by tinkering with 3D printers, creating indoor vertical gardens from recycled 2-liter bottles, and broadcasting community solutions through podcasts.
