Date: Wednesday, October 2, 2013
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Location: Jones Auditorium

“Innovate. Take a chance. Change the world.”

Featuring Jessica Matthews and Julia Silverman
As undergrads, these two women took a class assignment and turned it into a start-up business that can change the world. Harvard named them “Scientists of the Year” in 2012. Come and find out for yourself why they got a shout out on the Colbert Report. Hear why Bill Clinton invited them to speak at the Clinton Global Initiative. At age 26, their message is: don’t wait, women and girls – think globally and start changing our world now with fresh ideas.   Uncharted Play is a for-profit social enterprise dedicated to improving lives through play.  Their flagship product is the SOCCKET, an energy harnessing soccer ball that can charge a cell phone! Don’t miss this one – catch the dream!
Counts as an Academic/Cultural Event for General Education requirements.
