Innovators' Symposium
While originally planned for Friday, February 17th, 2017, Sea Crest has had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Innovators Symposium. We would like to let you know that despite our best efforts, we were unable to secure the minimum number of speakers needed to host the symposium this year.   

Our vision for the day was to connect real-world, innovative practitioners with our students through a variety of immersive, hands-on experiences. We looked into different ways to create those learning opportunities with the speakers that confirmed, but we could not arrange a full day of experiential and meaningful activities. We will have a regular MS Friday schedule on the 17th.
