Cameron Herold: Let's raise kids to be entrepreneurs
I admit I was concerned when my daughter started two businesses at 14 years old. It took so much from me not to oversee her. She manages them beautifully. She treats customers with upstanding business ethics. My younger daughter makes creative soaps. It took alot of research on her part to get the right ingredients of soothing emolliants. My 8 year old, well let's just say he's the techie in the family. I used to think people would think they were weird but I can see their entrepreneurial kids. Glad their who they are and love them lots.

Mariana Mazzucato: Government -- investor, risk-taker, innovator
As a lone innovator and somewhat visionary what advice can anyone give me as to getting my projects/ideas off the ground. Here is one project. I would like to create an immersive atmosphere using Holographic technology using nanotechnology ran by a computer (to create productions) with a symbiosis between human and computer to create displays to transition from one state of attitude to another.Basically, a rollar skating rink with images above the skater (I.e. Holographic Universe to breakdown of cells to beyond) and Holographic images surround (snowflakes etc.) Producing an immersive learning experience. Intent is to bring back childhood curiosities and teach ,STEM though a natural atmosphere. Promote curiosity and fun. I am not interested in being rich or in debt. More interested in providing "everyone" with an experience of joy and the oldest as well as the newest discoveries in STEM(science, technology,engineering, and Math) Also with awesome music. This is just a bit of the my ideas. Main objective also includes keeping it affordable to everyone. And being able to monitor it's effectiveness in local schools. I would like to someday see our children looking through "new eyes" See the world differently with better knowledge of it.

Jinha Lee: Reach into the computer and grab a pixel
Great to use as a different type of dimentional tool for teaching and seeing beyond the 2 dimensions. Also future whole body jump into a virtual world (Star Treks Holodeck) May be fantasy at this time but he did say "what if" we removed the barriers. I see it as a great teaching tool and endless possibilities in educating our kids. Kids would be so fascinated with the technology..the content would be absorbed and remembered.

Judy MacDonald Johnston: Prepare for a good end of life
Before my mother showed any signs of illness I contributed to Long Term Disability through my job but for specifically for her care. I Lived in Maryland at the time and she lived in California at the time. This way if anything happened to her she would get the care she needs. The best decision I ever made, even provided a nurse to take care of her at home etc.

What were you like as a teenager?
The world was just opening up to me. I was a nerd, athlete and thought teachers were the greatest people. IQ test revealed 168 in the 9th grade hid it and just tried to fit in with (what I thought) was the cool group. Overall High School was great. Now I like to take walks and have talks with my kids to find out who they are and where their at in their thoughts on social issues.

Can a Childrens Book be written to explain String/M Theories, that is friendly and relatable?
Thats beautiful Bob. Yes I was thinking about introductory approaches because of the complexity. AFter looking at loads of text, conversations, etc. I am looking to also preparing the readers brain. What a task this is shaping up to be. The journey is awesome and your suggestions are great. in this process it is opening up so much information, different points of views, perspectives and knowledge. So I am researching the human brain, just a bit. I think it's also important to be responsible . I can just imagine a reader going to hear all these things in their future and debates, wouild like to leave them with one common thread, Would like to open their eyes to the possibility to see new things through New eyes. Hope that doesn't sound weird. But when I'm done , It will make sense. Thank You very much for your thoughts Bob. Greatly appreciated.
