Creativity Forum - Bay Area Discovery Museum

Creativity Forum

Each year, the Bay Area Discovery Museum host Creativity Forum, a fundraiser and thought leadership luncheon for educators, parents, business leaders, and the research community.

On March 9, 2018, we welcomed Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, author of Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children, to Creativity Forum. Dr. Hirsh-Pasek provided insight on the traits that matter most today and what we can do to develop them in children.

Creativity Forum 2018, was also a chance to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BADM’s school-readiness program, Connections. Connections provides low-income preschoolers attending subsidized schools—as well as their teachers and parents—a chance to experience BADM, both at the museum and at their schools.
