Her well-known TEDx Talk, “Reprogramming Your Brain to Overcome Fear” answers how humans can turn off fear and simultaneously do the things we are most scared of. As a science enthusiast, Olympia has become a huge STEM advocate.

Gary uses his 3D microscopes to investigate moon sand brought to Earth during the Apollo missions. His most recent project was working with Scorpio V and NASA to design a 3D microscope for the International Space Station.
Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most recognized theoretical physicists in the field of science. He uses his research to aid in predicting future trends that affect business, commerce, finance and technology. Ever since he was younger he loved science. When he was a student at Palo Alto’s Cubberley High School, he created his own particle accelerator inside his parents’ garage. He stated that his goal was to generate gamma ray beams that would be strong enough to be able to produce antimatter. Needless to say, Michio loves his career, and wants to continue to share it with the world.
