Kicking off the Pasadena Educational Foundation’s (PEF) annual spring event, Celebrating Our Schools, ENVISION 2017, will be an interactive showcase, Kaleidoscope, that highlights the outstanding students and remarkable programs of the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD). Following the showcase will be a keynote address from Parsons CEO Charles Harrington, a visionary and inspiring leader in engineering and a special presentation with Tim Sippel, John Muir High School Principal, and students from the Engineering & Environmental Sciences Academy. The event will be held on Tuesday, May 2, at the historic Pasadena City Hall. Kaleidoscope begins at 5 p.m., speaker program begins at 6 p.m. followed by a reception in the courtyard. Tickets are available online at: http://pased.org/envision

Kaleidoscope exhibits represent schools throughout the PUSD and will give guests the opportunity to get hands-on and have fun as they engage with students and teachers utilizing virtual reality, designing space missions and colonies, programming computers, examining the brain, solving advanced math problems, creating with 3D printers, and more. The John Muir High School Solar Cup Team will be on hand with a preview of their student designed 15-foot solar powered boat along with the Muir MOJO Backpack team of mobile journalists. A Friendship Bench inspired photo booth, created and run by middle school students, will ensure guests have a souvenir of the evening and maybe even make a new friend.
