In this episode, we hear about the many world travels and projects of the one and only Jenny Buccos aka the real Dora the explorer. Listen in to hear Dave and Jenny discuss growing up in small-town America, traveling, visiting the Parthenon, and how much growth students can experience when they are taught to have a global worldview. They talk about involving students in the discussion of how education should be structured, how to highlight young innovators, and how to ensure representation in educational media.

Jenny and her business partner Kari Byron, aka the Crash Test Girl, are using their content to help shape students into the innovators of tomorrow.
