    • Kari Byron is a born tinkerer and explorer. By the age of 5, she was experimenting on her sister and using dolls as crash test dummies. Luckily for her parents, they always caught her right before her little sister took a ride down a laundry chute or was the subject of an “around-the-world” attempt on the playground swings. Kari has traveled the world and recommends it! Kari began her career as a sculptor and painter, holding successful exhibitions leading art galleries in San Francisco , before finding her dream jobs on MythBusters on Discovery Channel and for awhile with Head Rush, where she was able to explore and experiment to her heart’s content. Pro MythBuster & … ____________________________________________________________________ Do It While You're Young Try new things Push Through Failure Kari Byron Reach Your Full Potential Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster

Her aim was to inspire and excite us about the wonders of science and show science at work in our everyday lives. _____________________________________________________________________ Kari would dive into mathematics, science, technology, engineering, natural history and space with hands-on experiments, video shorts, viewer questions and answers, games, and special celebrity visits from other members of the Discovery TV family.
    • Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster My new design to get around traffic. From Kari Byron's Twitter feed @KariByron.
    • Kari Byron “Turn your fear and doubt into confidence by taking action and pushing through failure”
    • Traveling is such a great way to learn more about yourself and your place in the world—and the best time to do it is while you’re in school or just finishing your formal education. “Because of my experiences and what I learned on my travels, my thinking today has definitely been broadened and my appoach to life is more creative and „outside the box.‟” Pro MythBuster & … “I was scared to death to leave my family and leave my hometown where I had lived my entire life.” Do It While You're Young Travel the World Push Through Failure Reach Your Full Potential Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster
    • I still can’t believe how traveling and trying new opportunities has affected me. Pro MythBuster & … “When I returned from my travels, I kept my curious spirit alive and decided to try different jobs that interested me.” Learning about other people and understanding their perspectives is such an important part of life. Do It While You're Young Travel the World Push Through Failure Reach Your Full Potential Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster
    • I remember times when I had to deal with a lot of rejections and setbacks. I figured out that no matter how miserably I had failed, the experience wasn’t going to kill me. “Knowing that I could fail and still be okay gave me a lot of courage.” Pro MythBuster & … Push Through Failure Do It While You're Young Push Through Failure Reach Your Full Potential Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster
    • Do It While You’re Young “I‟ve learned the number one thing you don‟t want to do is wish you had done more when you were younger.” I’ve known so many people who have regrets, but by developing curiosity and courage to step out of your comfort zone, you can do and experience so many cool things. “One thing that really changed my life was surrounding myself with people who inspired me.” Pro MythBuster & … Do It While You’re Young Push Through Failure Reach Your Full Potential Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster

    • Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster Becoming a Mom “Holy crap. I am a mom!” That is seriously what I was thinking as the dust settled around me from shooting a .50 caliber rifle. On my first experiment back from maternity leave, I found myself perched on a hill in a rock quarry aiming a huge firearm at a remotecontrolled SUV covered in phone books. ________________________________________________ But how come I still felt like me? I figured once you become a mom, you settled down … ________________________________________________ I guess a lot of people thought the same. … The first reaction I usually got to the news of my impending little one was, “Your life is about to change. You won’t be jumping out of any more planes.” Or, “Are you still going to work at MythBusters?”
    • Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster
    • Artist, Thrill-Seeker, and Pro MythBuster “You will take less risks as a mom,” everyone told me. What?! I am still me. I don’t hold back from doing daring things. Of course I still jump out of planes! ________________________________________________ “In the end, you have to respect yourself and come to like yourself.” Even though I will have to eat live bugs this season and possibly handle poop, I am not fazed. I still do exciting, daredevil, and wild things — but now I do them so that my little girl will know that a mommy can distinguish between a C4 and an ANFO explosion. http://www.wired.com/geekmom/2010/10/kari-byron-from-mythbuster-to-mom/ What really changed was that my everyday life has become a profoundly blissful experience. I get just as excited about peek-aboo as I do about counting down an explosion. But how come I still felt like me? ________________________________________________ If I want my daughter to be an adventurous independent woman who doesn’t shy away from new experiences, I will have to be that woman too.
    • Reach Your Full Potential What are Your Guiding Principles? Who’s Your Biggest Fan? What Motivates You? Who Inspires You? Kari says her “biggest fan” is her father, what about you?
    • Where are you going?
    • Name Card “Tent”  PRINT your name on right side  Draw or Write on Left Side a Unique or Surprising Fact about You (I’ve heard a student at Concordia) “Have baby camels at
    • Journal #1 – “Now Tell Us Your Story” Your journal response should be thoughtful, organized, well-developed, and written in edited standard written English (ESWE). Journals are required to be at least 300 words in length. Each question response should be at least one paragraph. (Refer to the rubric for more clarification on grading.)  You‟ve Met Kari Byron from Mythbusters. You Heard Her Story - Now Tell Us Your Story! College is a time when you can write YOUR story. For your first College Transitions Journal, please write a minimum of three paragraphs describing all of the following: Tell us how you got here. What is your story prior to CSP? For example, what did you do? Where did you go to school? What kinds of “messages” did you receive from parents, peers, siblings, teachers, and/or coaches about your success? In essence, what made you YOU? Then, tell us who you plan to be now that you are in college. For example, will you be a student who avoids challenges, dislikes effort, and wilts in the face of adversity? Or will you be a go-getter, who thrives on challenge, persists even when things get difficult, and accomplishes more than might have been expected of you. Are you going to rewrite your life or edit it to become the person you want to be? Tell us about your future goals. What are your intentions for the future? Where do you see yourself in five years? Ten? For example, what sort of job will you have? Family? Ambitions? How do you plan to “give back” (appreciate) for the blessing (some think of this as good fortune or God’s Will) that got you this far?
