“One idea lights a thousand candles.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson –
Our world needs innovation. However, our educational system is not built to produce innovators. To the contrary, only those who are emboldened enough to go against the grain have the potential to change the world.
The critical failure of our education system is seen most dramatically in the poor imaginations of today’s students. Fortunately, one tool has the potential to change this:
For over a century, science fiction has played a singular role in inspiring people of all agest to explore the world with courage and imagination in ways that compel them to become innovative members of society.
The following people have become innovators due to a direct relationship they had with some of the greatest science fiction stories of all time:
Each of these people became innovators through luck. Were it not for each of them encountering the right science fiction story at the right time, they might have never contributed so greatly to the world.
What if there was a story that inspired children to imagine a better world, and gave them the skills to create it?
Tesoro is a transmedia project that seeks to inspire endless generations of readers and sciene fiction fans. Through captivating storytelling over five books and compelling, relevant exposure to innovative and engaging content, readers will be invited to pursue a life of exploration and innovation.
DISCOVERY THROUGH STORYTELLING
Tesoro awoke one morning in the basement of his new home to discover that he had what no other robot on the planet had—parents, and a mind of his own. From that moment on, Tesoro learns how to navigate high school, is arrested by the authorities, makes a few friends and finds himself at the center of a growing technology crisis on the island of Domanis—the first man-made nation on Earth that houses close to two million people and travels the world.
The first twenty-four chapters of Tesoro will soon be released online. As readers experience the story, they quickly find that there is more within each page than just the tale being told. Easter eggs are buried within the text that, when discovered, will reveal an ever-expanding world that has a real connection to the world we all inhabit today.
Readers will learn about robotics and artificial intelligence, experience compelling brain games, watch video interviews with innovators of today, and receive bonus materials that open the window into the expanding world Tesoro inhabits.
SCIENCE FICTION MEETS SCIENCE FACT
Additionally, even more content will be discovered that tells the story of how the ideas in the novel are linked to the real world. Readers will be introduced to real people working actively today in innovative fields such as artificial intelligence, soft robotics, autonomous transportation, synthetic biology and more.
Through this content, readers will learn how the imaginative concepts in the story are in fact related to real innovation today.
By connecting the thrilling science fiction novel to real innovations of today, we have the potential to create a lifelong relationship between the reader a world of science, creativity and imagination.
Prosthetics …and more
