How Intelligent are You?
November 7, 2018 | 6 p.m.
Location: The Far Hills Brain Space

We talk a lot about our mission—to prepare students for success in the modern world. But what does success look like? It no longer requires “book smarts” alone. In an ever-changing world filled with innovation and enterprise, employers and leaders are looking for more than traditional intelligence. They are seeking resilient, motivated, problem solvers and critical thinkers. How do we prepare our children for this?

Come, hear, and experience how new information about the science of the brain helps children to be successful in the modern world. In addition, learn how the creation of the Brain Space and its curriculum for our PreK to Grade 4 learners addresses the skills needed for students to go far in life.

In this session, YOU will be the learner. Bring your intellect, creativity and communication skills as we mirror a Lower School Brain Space activity to design a solution to a real-world problem.
