New Interviews

Paulo Younse 21 June 2015
When we first interviewed Paulo nine years ago, he had not been working very long at his dream job as a mechanical engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  In this new interview, he talks about many of the many adventures that came about for him as a result of his job (which he still loves).

Rachel Zimmerman Brachman 5 June 2015
Rachel always had an interest in engineering and the sciences.  At the age of 12, when she was only in 7th grade, she invented a special device for the disabled.  Today, she works at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory where she shares her passion for the solar system and technology with students and the general public.


Aerospace & Aviation
Do you dream about becoming a pilot, or maybe an astronaut?  Here you can meet an astronaut, pilots, "rocket scientists", an astronaut trainer and an Air Traffic Controller.

Arts & Entertainment
There are many fun jobs in the Arts.  Maybe you like to draw or act?  Do you enjoy music and dance?  Meet a movie actor and director, a dancer, musicians and visit a few "art galleries" too.

Business
Many careers you come across often.  Visit with bankers, business men and women and even a female truck driver!

Engineering & Technology
If you wonder how things work ask an engineer.  Enter the world of engineers including robotocists and software engineers (a.k.a. computer programmers).

Government, Law & Public Service
Here are some jobs that relate to public service.  These are people that do jobs that serve the greater community.

Living History
Nothing makes history come alive than meeting a real, live person straight from the pages of your history book.  Living Historians make history come to life through their portrayals of great people from the past.

Medical
Where would we be without healthcare workers.  Do you have the right stuff to work in the field of medicine?  Our experts can help you find out.

Writing & Journalism
Learning how to write well could lead to a future career as an author or a journalist.  Some of our writers followed totally different career paths but they KNEW they had to write, so they eventually followed that dream as well.  Journalists might stay in the same region throughout their career.  Maybe they will travel all over the world as part of the job.  Writing well gave all these experts a rewarding career.

Science
Science is all around you.  If you wonder why things are the way they are, perhaps one of our scientists can answer your questions.  Meet some very interesting people in different fields of science: archaeology, astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, marine biology, meteorology, neuroscience and physics.

World Community
Some people have the opportunity to travel and live all over their world because of their careers.  Learn what type of jobs gave these experts the chance to travel.

Peer Mentors
Some of the experts we interview at Imagiverse are young people, not much older than many of you who read the Imagiverse interviews wondering what career path you will someday take.  Some of these experts have recently graduated with a university degree and some are still in school.  Find out what life is like beyond high school, from people who just recently got there!

Stepping Back in Time
History is full of amazing people and incredible accomplishments.  Some of these people are remembered in history books.  Others lived their lives as best as they could and although they never became "famous", they touched the lives of the people they came in contact with and made a difference of their own.  Imagine a world before Internet, computers, airplanes, automobiles, electric light bulb, telephones, hot running water in bathrooms, flush toilets...
