Addressing the world’s increasing demand for energy requires new strategies for generating, moving and storing energy. Special lecturer Lonnie Johnson, a former aerospace engineer now leading cutting-edge developments in new energy technologies, will lead a presentation about his work and the role engineering plays in addressing the 21st century energy challenge.
More about Lonnie Johnson
Johnson is perhaps best known as the rocket scientist who invented a toy— the Super Soaker® Water Gun—and he has more than 100 patents in his name. Guests can see Johnson's first prototype for the toy in the Museum’s Fast Forward exhibit.
