About The Desired Future: How can we get there? What needs to change? What can you do to help? The documentary film 'Imagine it!² The Powerof Imagination' presents a powerful story capturing innovative moments in history and inspiring people today to meet the grand challenges of a new generation. The film illustrates the convergence of science, engineering and technology with education, political will and personal desire, intersecting at a moment in time unlike any other; when a new generation unleashes their curiosity to change the world in ways we can only imagine. You will be watching a 25-minute excerpt from imagine it!² called "Global Challenges."? This is Part 1 of the 3-part film and introduces challenges such as the Apollo Project, The X Prize and the National Academy of Engineering's Grand Challenges. Following the screening there will be a brief panel discussion with Executive Producer Richard Tavener, Director Rudy Poe, internationally renowned Neuroscientist Terry Sejnowski, and President of Intel Science Talent Search and Publisher of Science News Elizabeth Marnicola. The discussion will be moderated by Barbara Bry, Associate Publisher, San Diego News Network.
