Evergreen Speaker Series Debut: Cultivating Giftedness in Young Minds

Featuring Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. and Allison Gopnik, Ph.D.

Our Speaker Series debuted in 2008, with a joint presentation by renowned psychologist/author Carol Dweck and leading cognitive scientist/author Allison Gopnik. Over 200 educators, parents and members of the community attended the event, which focused on the topic Cultivating Giftedness in Young Minds. Both speakers brought a wealth of compelling questions to the forefront including,"How can we use positive reinforcement and encouragement to move our children from fixed to growth mindsets?" and "How does play for children change over time and vary by age?"
