Our Mission

  A 9-year old girl once said that she might forget a lot of what she learns in school through the years but she would always remember the supervised chats with NASA experts because she "got to talk to amazing people".  Those words were part of the inspiration behind Imagiverse.  Getting to talk to amazing people can create life long memories and be defining moments in the lives of young children.  Words from an "expert" may spark a dream, leading to the pursuit of a faraway goal.

Amazing people abound in all walks of life.  It doesn't matter what career path you choose but it does matter that you love what you do and strive to be the best that you can be.

Here, inside the pages of Imagiverse, you will find many truly amazing people.  They work in many different fields and come from diverse backgrounds, from different parts of the world.  The one thing they all have in common is the willingness to share their stories with children around the world.  Read their interviews, chats, biographies and their replies to questions from children around the world.  Come meet the amazing friends of Imagiverse!

Experts are listed here in alphabetical order.  See our Interviews section to find listings based on career field or chronological addition to this site.  Browse through our Biographies section to find the biographies of some of our experts.
