Advancing STEM Education in North Texas

Guest Speaker – Gretchen Rubin

Best-selling author of The Happiness Project

On Friday, September 21st, Sci-Tech Discovery Center is delighted to host Gretchen Rubin at our inaugural Meeting of the Minds event, a speaker series featuring leading thinkers who embody our brand of mind-stretching fun®. Proceeds from Meeting of the Minds will expand access to STEM education for under-served youth in North Texas.

Gretchen Rubin is one of today’s most thought-provoking observers of happiness and human nature.  She is the author of many books, including blockbuster New York Times bestsellers The Happiness Project, Better Than Before, and The Four Tendencies.  Her books have sold almost 3 million copies worldwide, in more than 30 languages.  On her top-ranking, award-winning podcast “Happier with Gretchen Rubin” she discusses happiness and good habits with her sister, Elizabeth Craft.

Thanks to Our Generous Sponsors!

Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit Sci-Tech Discovery Center hands-on educational outreach programs for economically disadvantaged youth.

Sci-Tech strives to inspire the next generation of creative STEM thinkers and achievers by providing dynamic Maker experiences and innovative learning programs that spark young people’s interest and give them confidence to pursue STEM degrees and careers.
