CASPA 2015 Educational Day's theme is to uncover the spark within you. The silicon valley has the highest concentration of talents. Is it true that the children of talented people must also have special talents? The world advances rapidly. What kind of talents will be needed for a successful person in the future? Would it be interesting to find out what is the new definition for "talents"?
Do you know what kind of stress the silicon valley's children are facing? If finding out that ourselves or our children are not the best in certain areas, what kind of mind set should we have? CASPA, one of the most influential Bay Area Chinese associations, would like to take this opportunity to invite students, parents and educational experts to share their thoughts to help our children through hard times and succeed by building strong self-confidences as well as social and emotional wellbeing. This event will be helpful to all Bay area parents and students: "All roads lead to Rome!"
