From Geek to Chic:  Knocking The Nerd Stereotype
Why are children so terrified to be called "nerds"?  In an age where we are increasingly dependent upon technology engineered by masterminds in math and science, why isn't it chic to be a "geek?"  In his book, "NERDS: How Dorks, Dweebs, Techies, and Trekkies Can Save America and Why They Might Be Our Last Hope," family psychotherapist and psychology professor Dr. David Anderegg examines why science and engineering have become what he calls socially poisonous disciplines and what we can do to prepare our children to succeed in an increasingly high-tech world. 
This show first aired March 29, 2011
Guests:
Dr. David Anderegg - child and family psychotherapist and author, "NERDS: How Dorks, Dweebs, Techies, and Trekkies Can Save America and Why They Might Be Our Last Hope" www.drdavidanderegg.com
