Literacy Solution Small Team Mentorship Opportunity

Over the course of the three-day Summer Institute, attendees will work within small teams to address the question of how to apply the knowledge of Neuroscience, Technology and Literacy gained each day from the keynotes and translation sessions to solve the issue of literacy in their own communities. This time will be scheduled and mentorship from experts will be provided throughout the week. At the end of the week, the teams will have the opportunity to present their literacy solution (in the form of programs, training models, products, etc.) to a panel of esteemed Philadelphia community members.
