On the heels of opening up registration for its annual WWDC event, Apple will hold an education-focused event on March 27 that will highlight “creative new ideas for teachers and students,” multiple reports indicate.

Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago will host the event at 10am CDT on March 27. Apple’s last education event took place all the way back in 2012 in New York City. In typical Apple fashion, the event’s invitation doesn’t offer any details about the impending announcements.

Apple has hosted hardware events during springtime before, and there are a number of rumored devices that could come out at this event. Gossip says Apple might be about to reveal a new 9.7-inch iPad for a special education price of $259. New iPads have been rumored for later this year as well, but it’s unlikely that an education-focused iPad would include the new and expensive FaceID camera. A new iPad with Apple’s high-end camera, which enables FaceID, Animoji, and ARKit features, may debut later this year.
