Creative Disruption in Schools: Re-Inventing Science Education (CANCELLED)

April 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

In research as well as industry today, young professionals need core competencies such as the ability to think creatively and experiment rigorously to solve a problem, work collaboratively in teams, navigate uncertainty, and to accept failure as a pathway to success.

Changing schools from a focus on memorization and compliance to institutions of discovery, experimentation and deep learning has remained an elusive goal. Join us for a passionate conversation with leading scientists, educators and administrators on how we can re-invent science education today — and why we must.

Meet middle school students who have already successfully edited genes using the CRISPR technology; who are working with Boston University on a psychological study they design and run themselves; who are designing wearables for health in collaboration with a major Boston-based research group.

Experience new ways to learn at maker-stations run by students & teacher-facilitators.

Location TBD. Check back soon.

Cost: Free.
