Life Leadership with Alex Urbina on Monday, March 11, 2013

Today we have Amber Raskin, founder of SCVi Charter School, and guests Omar Torres and Elizabeth Riddell and we will be discussing art, science and leadership.

At SCVi Charter we want the students to become the leaders they are supposed to be and can be, Raskin said.

That is great but how do you or can you inspire people, Urbina said.

Einstein quote – “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”

How does science lead into leadership?

There are so many different obstacles and barriers today the students deal with. This day in age, technology can also be problematic for students, Torres said.

Regardless what area the students enter they can be successful. Whether they are discussing the scientific method or what a hypothesis is, it is important that the message that gets to the students is that it is okay if they don’t know the answers but it is their curiosity and how they must keep asking questions.

The thing about science that excites me is the ability to challenge and question everything around me, Urbina said. The science of the brain and how it functions over someone’s life and my own fascinates me. As I get older I find it more and more intriguing on how everything is connected in some way.  Just challenging different ways of thinking.

Students do not always believe that they can be successful at science or math and that is just heartbreaking, Omar said. People need to think outside the box with math. We have worked to create a new class for algebra. It is more geared to more statistic based learning and students that might not have been told they were great at math excel and continue past their basic requirement for the subject.

What people need to understand is that there truly is a discovery in failing, Urbina said.

If you take failure and learn from it then it is not a failure and that is what Omar is talking about, Raskin said. In the traditional system, but not always, students, especially in the higher or more advanced classes, have not been setup to fail and are devastated and can’t recover.

Failing is not the worse thing that can’t happen to you. Pro athletes, scientist and many more professionals have failed and learned from it and have all excelled.

We should tweak the phrase from accepting your child to fail to, “give your kids permission to fai,” Urbina said. Your job as a parent is to be their best champion and help them notice that they are not a failure if they do not succeed but see it as an experience and grow from that.
