Martin Institute/Harvard Project Zero Scholarships

My school, Presbyterian Day School, was thrilled to recently be chosen as a satellite location for Harvard's Project Zero. I was lucky enough to attend in Cambridge a few years back at it is amazing. I encourage all educators to mark their calendars and head to Memphis in February. There are some scholarships available through the Martin Institute. I am cutting and pasting all the info here. The links on the cut and pasted info won't be live so you can check them out here

If you attend, come by my class and say hello! Hope to see you all here! 

I don't know why all my writing has white on it but I am running too late to fix it today. :-)
Class starts next week so we will be posting as a group again soon.
