BRAIN RULES: SURVIVING & THRIVING FROM HOME TO SCHOOL. Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know. Brain Rules, taught by John Medina, is about what we know for sure, and what we might do about it. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 5th from 7:00-9:00 PM. Location: Cornerstone Theater at The Bear Creek School (Union Hill Campus location at 8905 208th Avenue NE, Redmond) Admission Price: $20. Visit the Bear Creek School's web site to purchase tickets.  Read More >>
