  • Beer & Bots: Reception with Dean Kamen & Maywa Denki

    This is a rare opportunity to meet two remarkable inventors with surprisingly common ground. Dean Kamen is the Founder of DEKA and FIRST. Perhaps best known for inventing the Segway, his devices, such as drug pumps, revolutionary wheelchairs and the robotic “Luke Arm” for amputees have touched and improved lives around the globe. Be inspired and learn about FIRST, a program that teaches kids of all ages the principles of math, science and physics via robotics competitions. Novmichi Tosa is President of Maywa Denki, a Japanese sensation that is one-part Toy Company, one-part musical performance art and one-part cultural icon. Maywa Denki’s unforgettable performances, viral videos, music, toys and “nonsense” instruments have taken Asia by storm. It also runs workshops that teach Japanese children how to make instruments out of dime-store items. Join us to discuss innovation, education and how you can engage to build a better world.
