Hardship and adversity are unavoidable parts of life. However, youth can emerge from challenging situations stronger than before, able to navigate future hardships.

Presenters: Dido Balla, MS, Head of Education; Carrie Patterson, Executive Director, MindUp- The Goldie Hawn Foundation, Santa Monica, CA

In this in-depth interactive Academy, participants will receive simple tools and resources to support them in helping children understand the way their brain works, how the structures of the brain impact one's ability to focus attention, manage emotions, and understand the human potential for happiness. Through MindUP, over 7 million students from around the world have learned how to take brain breaks to regulate their emotions, practice perspective-taking, and bring more optimism, kindness, and gratitude into their lives.

ULA, MLA, CB, DS, E, M, H

Presenters: Christine Lawlor-King, Invention Education Consultant, Lemelson-MIT, Manchester, CT; Brenda Payne, Executive Director, California Invention Convention, Santa Cruz, CA

Invention Education appeals to all students! It starts with students identifying problems in their lives rather than being given a problem to solve. This inspires students to design a solution, using empathy and perseverance. Educators will experience design challenges that demonstrate that agency, self-direction, and fun. Invention education is a powerful tool in connecting to your community. The session will include examples from young inventors and community involvement stories.

Leaders, practices, and processes within the organization can stimulate or suppress the performance, culture, and outcomes for all.
