KLRU will be participating in Austin Partners in Education’s Feria Para Aprender 2010 (The Learning Fair) on Saturday, February 6th from 10am-2pm at the Travis County Expo Center (7311 Decker Lane, 78724). Feria Para Aprender was first created in Austin, Texas in 2007 with over 3,500 Spanish-speaking parents and students attending. In 2010, it is expanding to a regional event and 10,000 people will be anticipated.
Parents and students are able to receive a variety of information at all levels of the educational process at this event – from early childhood through college and into their career fields. Students also receive free books in Spanish, free immunizations and vision screenings, and free healthy snacks during their time at the event. KLRU will be handing out children’s books & materials, information on parenting, and a booth activity for the children. Stop by to say hello to PBS pals Clifford and Maya & Miguel.
