Glen, Founder & CEO @ Galileo: Innovation Camps for Kids

"When I started Galileo I thought what I was doing was providing access to academic areas like science, and engineering, and visual arts.  But it turned out that what we were really doing was creating an environment.  An environment that collectively, between curriculum design, classroom ritual, and overall community design, creates a special space that allows people's best selves to emerge.  And ideally that's what schools could do too.  It's harder, I know, but that's what I would love to see happen in schools."

"II think in a way [school] kind of prepares you for life, but at the same time it is kind of preparing you for college and kind of preparing you to get good grades and do well on a test to get you into a school...In a way it is kind of teaching like socially how to put you into bigger life situations, but at the same time not really. It is not really preparing you.
