#FailFest - A Learnshop on Risk-Taking

Failure is often treated as a bad word in education yet so many of the inventors and creators of our time often failed miserably multiple times in life. Failure and risk-taking are a part of the learning process. During this interactive "Learnshop", we’ll learn what barriers we create to stifle creativity and how to overcome them, as well as take a few risks ourselves. Come ready to move! Afterall, it’s not how you fall down, it’s how you get back up!
