Presentation on the Future of Education & Round Table Discussion: Join us for a thought-provoking presentation on whether traditional education models are adequately preparing kids for the 21st century economy.  As we enter the age of information and automation, young people will need to acquire skills that computers cannot replace: innovation, creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, resilience and collaboration to name a few. Learn about some different perspectives on this topic and join the conversation about the hopes and dreams you have for your kids, their education, and their futures. Come–let’s discuss as a community.  Relevant to educators and parents with children of all ages–you are guaranteed to leave this event with thoughtful takeaways–don’t miss it.
