The youth of today will likely have the opportunity to travel far past the reaches of Earth’s gravity
to the Moon, Mars, and beyond, but getting there will not be easy. Instead, it will take individuals
with a pioneer spirit fueled by imagination, the ability to collaborate with others, and the
willingness to stay focused on solving seemingly impossible tasks over long periods of time.
“Dare Mighty Things” takes you behind the scenes at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for the landing
of InSight on the surface of Mars to learn from NASA scientists and engineers the behaviors and
characteristics that made it possible and ways that we can develop these skills within ourselves and
our children. The future is now!

Hello, my name is Brian, and I am a GEEK. Today, this once derogatory term often serves as a badge
of honor for myself and for many of our gifted kids. Growing up in gifted programs during the 1970s
and 1980s, I was provided with opportunities to develop my creativity, interests, and talents. As an
adolescent in the 1980s terms like geek or nerd were hardly a symbol to be celebrated, but it was
growing up in gifted programs that helped me to find solace, understanding, and ultimately
empowerment. As a result of these experiences, I have devoted my life to advocating for
gifted education.
