“Most Likely to Succeed” Film Screening and Travis Makerspace Fundraiser Tickets, Tue, Mar 8, 2016 at 6:00 PM | Eventbrite

Please join us on Tuesday, March 8th to discuss our schools; what we want them to look and how we can work together to meet the changing needs of our global society.  Doors open at 5:30pm, special guest ¡Oh Antonio + His Imaginary Friends! will play from 6-6:30, and the movie starts at 6:45pm followed by a discussion and Q/A. Since the movie is about innovation in education, we are excited to be able to help Travis High School in developing a makerspace and innovation center at their school. All proceeds from the screening will go directly to support providing resources for their space and teacher training related to those tools. About the movie: For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in todayʼs innovative world. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week.  See more at http://mltsfilm.org/  Schedule: 5:30pm – Doors Open 6-6:30pm – ¡Oh Antonio + His Imaginary Friends! 6:45-8:15pm – Film Screening 8:15-9pm – Discussion Source: “Most Likely to Succeed” Film Screening and Travis Makerspace Fundraiser Tickets, Tue, Mar 8, 2016 at 6:00 PM |...
