Room 5B (San Diego Convention Center)Much attention has been paid to how we can attract young people to the fields of science and engineering. The National Academies report, Rising Above the Gathering Storm, prompted a national conversation on the topic while the Grand Challenges for Engineering project and report of the National Academy of Engineering inspires enthusiasm for the future. The independent documentary, “Imagine it!2 The Power of Imagination,” was created by independent filmmakers to engage a new generation of science leaders. This ambitious film seeks to ignite a movement to improve learning by integrating creativity and imagination with science and technology. Learn how you can join the all-star cast of scientists and engineers to pass on the curiosity and passion that originally engaged you in the sciences.
