Adventures Of The Mind Brings Students-Nobel Prize Winners To Missoula

Expect the state’s collective IQ to jump several points June 23-26 during the Adventures of the Mind achievement mentoring summit at The University of Montana. Using the theme “Under the Big Sky,” Adventures of the Mind will give a fascinating array of high achievers the chance to mentor more than 170 of the nation’s most promising high school students from nearly every state. I spoke with the Dean of the University of Montana Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences Roberta ‘Bobbie’ Dean on Thursday afternoon about the five-day event. A portion of that interview is attached.

The 50-plus mentors include accomplished artists, athletes, inventors, Nobel laureates, novelists, scientists, trailblazers and world changers. Among them are Richard Taylor, who earned the 1990 Nobel Prize in physics (one of seven participating Nobel laureates); Peter Norvig, director of research at Google; Bonnie Dunbar, an astronaut who logged 50 days in space; and Roz Chast, the renowned New Yorker cartoonist.
