How can schools educate students to be innovators?



Robert C. Parker School is presenting a Panel Discussion on Educating for Innovation: How do we equip children to thrive in an Age of Innovation? at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, April 5, 2017.  The event celebrates the school’s 25th anniversary and the launch of its new 3,300 square foot Discovery Center for Science and the Arts.

Five scientists, mathematicians and engineers from international business and secondary and higher education will engage in a lively conversation about how schools can ignite children’s minds and hearts as innovators.

Panelists Dr. Kim Boyer, Founding Dean of the College of Engineering at UAlbany; Dr. Heidi Jo Newberg, Professor of Astronomy at RPI; James Wolfe, Regeneron Director of Process Sciences; Michelle Sweeny, Tech Valley High math teacher; and Dr. Betty Lise Anderson, Ohio State Professor of Electrical Engineering will bring their unique perspectives to this topic.

Each of the panelists is passionately involved in spreading STEM, STEAM and an innovative mindset to students in K – 12.  The evening will inform teachers and parents as together we explore new ways to educate children for success.

The program is free and open to the public.  Childcare for children over 4 is provided.  For more information call 518 286-3449.
