The Seventh Annual Conference on Project-Based Learning
March 5-6, 1999, San Francisco, CA

Dear Friend,

They wonder, they explore, they experiment, and with our help they learn.
They are Kids Who Know and Do, and they are the focus of the Seventh Annual
Autodesk Foundation Conference, the nation's premier conference on
Project-Based Learning and School-to-Career.

Kids Who Know and Do evokes the essence of Project-Based Learning and
School-to-Career and embodies our vision of what this conference is about.
To fulfill it, we are making a special effort to ensure that students,
student voices, evidence of student work, and insights into student
perspectives are included in every presentation.

The conference will take place in San Francisco on Friday and Saturday,
March 5 and 6, 1999. In addition, a special day of pre-conference
school-based institutes will occur on Thursday, March 4, at Bay Area
Whole-School-Change High, Middle, Elementary, and Pre-K schools.
