Ready, Set, FAIL! Using Risk-taking and Failure to Unlock Creativity
Description: Risk-taking and celebrating failure can be great ways to stimulate creativity in the classroom. During this very interactive session based on the best-selling book Ready, Set, FAIL!, we’ll discuss the science behind failure and the roadblocks to creativity. Then, attendees will engage in several activities designed to help students activate the creative side of their brain.

Come prepared to move, think, and leave your
inhibitions at the door. It’s not how you fall down, it’s how you get back up!
