We're heading back to the Detroit Institute of Arts on Sunday, Sept. 30. From 10 a.m. till 3 p.m., parents and kids can dive into a wealth of educational opportunities throughout Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. Not to mention, attendees also can stick around and explore the DIA's incredible galleries – all totally FREE of charge!

At Metro Parent's 17th annual Education Expo, you'll:

  • Discover the best area schools
  • Find amazing enrichment, tutoring and extracurricular programs
  • Tap into offerings from local arts and health institutions
  • Learn about what child advocacy and empowerment organizations have to offer
  • Injury Prevention experts from Children’s Hospital of Michigan will be on hand to talk to families and give tips on health and safety.
  • Test your investigative skills and hunt for clues for great prizes. 
  • Kids of all ages can imagine, design and build with LEGO® bricks and robotics at The Robot Garage activity area.
  • Drop-in art workshops courtesy of the Sandbox Party.
  • Connect with financial planners to make your goals a reality
  • And much more

I have already pre-registered for this event, was I supposed to receive some kind of e-mail verification to present at the door?
