On Campus Mini Workshops

March 19, 2020

The Defining Your Path workshop went better than I could have imagined. It was both fascinating and inspiring to see young minds explore topics that are still actively being researched. The students were most engaged when given an activity to do or when asked about their own experiences with regards to misinformation. By bringing up what non-truths they have seen online, the students were able to reflect and engage in an interesting dialogue with their teachers, their peers, and us. It was in these moments that the workshop truly fell together and the students excelled in detecting and describing false information. Having now seen genuine interest in the faces of bright young students, I believe that what we were able to accomplish, even if its scope narrowed significantly in the last few weeks, was legitimately educational.

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, future on-campus Define Your Path workshops have been cancelled. We are very happy to have had the opportunity to meet and connect with the students who were able to attend our first two workshops!
