Geek. Nerd. Dork. Dweeb. All terms that were once derogatory and served to alienate and ridicule highly intelligent individuals who are passionate about specific areas of interest. Yet, in 2014, these have become terms of empowerment to a great number of gifted students and a source of true pride. This session begins by examining the origin and evolution in the portrayal of stereotypes in popular culture while exploring the differences between each of these terms. From there, a collection of online tools and resources for the geeks and nerds in your life are presented. Come and GET YOUR GEEK ON!
