The Menlo Park City School District will kick off its 2019-20 speaker series on Wednesday, Sept. 4, with Jo Boaler, a professor of mathematics education at Stanford University.
The program is set for 6:30 p.m.
Boaler will share her research on how minds work and how we can learn anything new at anytime, with the right mindset.
A participant in the district's speaker series last school year, Boaler will introduce her new book, "Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead, and Live Without Barriers," which includes six keys to unlocking learning potential.
Later in the school year, guest speakers are scheduled to present programs including: "Parenting Landmines: Peer Pressure, Vaping, Concussions, Sleep, Stress, and More"; and "Are You Using Technology or is Technology Using You?"
The district's annual speaker series includes talks by local authors, movie showings, and discussions with experts addressing parenting and education topics.
All speaker series events are held at the Hillview Middle School PAC, 1100 Elder Ave. in Menlo Park. Events are free and open to the public, and include food and child care for potty-trained children through Steve & Kate's Camp.
