Kona Science Cafe: Project-Based Learning in STEM Education
February 28, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
What should the future of education look like in West Hawaii and how does it support the science, innovation, and entrepreneurship programs in our community? Join Ted Dintersmith and a panel of local education and technology leaders to consider these important issues.
Ted Dintersmith has a background in electronics and venture capital. Frustrated by disconnects between what is taught and the skills needed in real life, he started a quest to learn about what works and does not work in education. The result was a book, Most Likely To Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era, and a documentary film: Most Likely to Succeed, which shows what children and schools are capable of achieving if encouraged in the right ways.
After the presentation, we will have pupus, drinks, and conversation. We are informal and it is potluck, so please bring a pupu and non-alcoholic beverage to share. Reusable plates and cups are encouraged, as is taking home your own trash.

5:15-6:15 p.m. Presentation and Q&A
