MESA, Ariz. - Arizona State University will host the first annual Educational Fair at the Polytechnic campus for K-12 administrators and educators in Arizona, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Jan. 8, in the Student Union Ballrooms at the Polytechnic campus.

Fair attendees will come away with new ideas, information and freebies. A "Make 'n Take" area will be available for participants to complete hands-on activities and take away lessons. In addition, there will be readings from children's books and Billie Enz, ASU associate director for Professional Development Curriculum and Instruction will present "Learning From the Inside Out."

Forty community partners will be participating, including the Botanical Gardens, Mesa Fire Department, American Red Cross, IMAX, Arizona Museum for Youth, Riparian Institute, Science is Fun, and many more. Teachers are encouraged to attend and take advantage of the community resources.
