Kevin Ward received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College, and his law degree from the University of California, Berkeley. He has since pursued a life-long fascination with how people learn – specifically, how to create lasting educational moments through experiential learning. Kevin was a teaching fellow at Harvard from 1998-2002. He also was a leading creative director in New York from 1980-2000, designing focused immersive experiential programs on leadership, innovation, and training for educational programs and companies such as Apple, IBM, AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies. When Kevin moved to Aspen, Colorado, he started the Aspen Strategy Center with the guiding principle that science is an indispensable tool for understanding our world, becoming an informed citizen, and enriching people’s lives. Now, he is focused on introducing youth to STEM education and the opportunities that come with such an education.
Since 2012, Aspen Strategy Center has been focused on science research, education, and outreach in order to bridge communities, universities, government, and NGOs together. Their goal is to inspire and innovate people around science and research for the betterment of humankind.
