Event Details

The 2017-2018 academic year marks Project Zero’s historic 50th anniversary at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. For five decades, PZ has led dozens of research projects that have influenced the field of education around the globe. To launch its 50th anniversary, PZ is convening a special event on Friday, October 13th, 2017. The event will be held at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and will celebrate the past, present and future of Project Zero, honoring the involvement of our many funders, collaborators and partners. 
The celebration will take place on Friday evening during GSE’s HUBweek forum, open to the public, featuring Drew Gilpin Faust, President of Harvard University; James E. Ryan, Dean, Harvard Graduate School of Education; Project Zero co-founders, Howard Gardner and David Perkins; Project Zero past directors, Steve Seidel and Shari Tishman; and Daniel Wilson, the current Project Zero director. The forum will offer insights gleaned from a half-century of iconoclastic investigations into changing conceptions of the mind and the implications of these changes for today’s teachers, schools, and society.
