Event Details

The Translator team recently watched and shared the Shawn Achor's Ted Talk at a recent lab session. We all really loved the message and were intrigued by the power of something as simple as being positive. Can you really rewire your brain to be more positive with a few new habits? We wanted to try the recipe for lasting positive change Shawn presents at the end of his video, but then we thought... why not invite you to join us? Only good can come of a community working together, and we can all hold each other accountable.

So we are officially launching the Be Positive Challenge. To kick things off, we'll watch the TED talk during lab , discuss and then kick off the 21 day challenge.

We will create a tumblr blog where those that are participating can post the three things they are grateful for daily and any random acts of kindness.

After the 21 days we’d like to hear about any breakthrough’s or aha’s along the way, and your feelings on the changes you experienced by taking the challenge. What do you have to lose? :)

If you can't make the lab but still want to participate sign up for the challenge below.

Islands of Brilliance

Islands of Brilliance is a technology-centric creative learning experience developed specifically for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Our classes help students gain the focus, socialization, and sense of accomplishment often lacking in traditional education and programming. We currently focus on students ages 9-16 diagnosed with Autism, Aspergers, and PDD-NOS. We offer Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions in which students are matched 1 : 1 with a volunteer mentor from the creative services industry. Together they create a poster or book, using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop software.

"Together, we are changing the lens from special needs to special gifts."
