We're back in Canada!!
Teaching at Shad Valley Carleton
We had an incredibly enriching time over in Europe, got involved in many interesting projects (will post about it more formally in the coming weeks) and we are now off on a summer adventure!! For the month of July we will be working at Shad Valley at Carleton University. Mentoring and teaching the young "leaders of tomorrow" in a program devoted to the entrepreneurial spirit and introducing some of the top high school students across Canada to the exciting world of social innovation. While there we will be having a workshop with the CONNEXIONS™ toy and plan on learning just as much as we are teaching.
