Mobile Classrooms: At-Risk Youth Learn On-the-Go
At-risk youth often struggle with juggling learning & work, childcare & other obligations. What if we combined transportation and hybrid learning through a fleet of self-driving buses? The fleet will serve as a blended learning classroom, roving the city 24-7. Passengers—or in this case students—can “hail” the buses through an Uber-like app when they are ready to learn. This session would look at how the program would work, other services that could be offered, & how it will help cities.

- Identify a multi-faceted solution for cities that face both low graduation rates and unreliable public transportation.
- Discuss alternatives to brick-and-mortar high schools and why it doesn’t work for all students.
