It’s no secret California and the nation continue to fight an uphill battle to stay educationally competitive. A recent study showed that American students ranked 25th among 34 countries in math and science, behind China, South Korea, Hong Kong and Finland. And California ranked “below average” in the U.S. What are the solutions for getting back on track? How can students develop the critical thinking and communication skills necessary for postsecondary success and citizenship in a world fueled by innovations in science and technology? Hear from a panel of educational experts who say the answer lies in real world problem solving, what’s termed “experiential education” or learning by doing.  Hear about innovative work that could well hold the key to turning around the educational system and America’s future.
