The SXSWedu Education Expo is a free-and-open-to-the public event celebrating the Central Texas community's hunger and passion for lifelong learning, from cradle to career and beyond on Tuesday, March 4 from 2:00pm - 8:00pm.

The Education Expo provides a collaborative community environment for learners of all ages to explore their immediate and long-term education and career goals. With hands-on, interactive exhibits, the Education Expo offers attendees the opportunity to engage with local education initiatives as well as the educational and career choices with which they are most intrigued. Students, parents and educators who pre-register will be entered into drawings for prizes at the event.
