The Museum of Science invites The Innovators to help us best shape an upcoming public forum topic.
Brain-Enhancing Drugs at School: Smart or Not?
An Innovators Forum Event
Thursday, November 19
Museum of Science, Boston
How should schools deal with the growing use of brain-enhancing drugs? More and more students are turning to nonmedical use of brain-enhancing drugs to help them focus and do better in school. Should schools crack down on those who are found to be using the drugs, or try to even the playing field by providing them to all students?
Learn about the effects of these cognitive enhancers and how students are using them at this interactive forum. Contribute to the conversation by considering the complexities and tradeoffs of potential solutions, sharing your perspective, and helping to shape the discussion to be used in an upcoming public forum at the Museum of Science.
6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Networking Reception & Buffet Dinner
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

The Mission of the Museum of Science
The Museum's mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation's relationship with science and technology. This role becomes ever more important as science and technology shape and reshape our lives and world, and it means we:
- Promote active citizenship informed by the world of science and technology
- Inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering
- Encourage young people of all backgrounds to explore and develop their interests in understanding the natural and human-made world
To do this, we will continue to build our position as a leader in the world's museum community and use our educational perspective as an informal learning institution to help the formal pre K-12 education system.
