 Have you seen the MAIN video?

On February 19, 2013 MAIN held its first Immersion Day at the Capitol. A full slate of activities included demonstration lessons from area immersion schools, visits with legislators, and informational presentations. 

If you have photos you would like to add to our Day at the Capitol gallery, you can send them to the MAIN webmaster.

See you next year for our expanded day at the Minnesota State Capitol.
