Sea Crest School’s Second Annual Innovators’ Symposium focused on the intersection of Innovation and Community. Hands-on workshops for Middle School students covered topics such as coastal pollution, group theory, venture capitalism, and the human brain. Speakers included physicians, professors, scientists, and Google’s Director of Education and University Relations.
The keynote speaker, Katlyn Grasso, shared her experience as a young CEO and encouraged students to have confidence in their ideas.
“The most successful entrepreneurs are incredibly determined and persistent,” said Grasso, who is the Founder and CEO of GenHERation. “I really encourage you to follow your dreams. Go out there and never take no for an answer.”
After the keynote, Katlyn led a workshop for students called The Perfect Pitch: How to Sell Yourself in Any Situation.
“I had a wonderful time at the Innovators’ Symposium and was impressed by the curiosity of the young students,” said Grasso. “I look forward to seeing how the students apply the insights from the Symposium to better the Sea Crest community.”
