Creating 21st Century Innovators by Ian Byrd, Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 7pm, Manhattan School of Arts and Academics, Boulder

 21st century technologies have opened up new paths for success. Gifted students' curiosity and intense interests make them uniquely suited to blaze these new trails. At the same time, gifted characteristics such as perfectionism and impostor syndrome can hold them back. We will discuss how parents and teachers can support students, empowering them to become tomorrow's innovators. Please register here through Eventbrite.

(Educators requesting Instructional Seat Time must also register through MyPassport.)
