Science Pub Series #12 – Our Next Generation of Innovators
Join Dr. Rob Williams, retired Air Force officer and director of Discovery Lab Global (DLG), as he introduces the concept of “Entrepreneurial STEM through the Eyes of an Avatar.” Please register as soon as possible as seating is limited.
Dr. Williams will discuss how DLG recruits college and high school students globally, offering them opportunities to work on biomedical, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and space sciences projects through the use of 3D virtual reality. He will also describe projects that have the potential to support start-up concepts to assist the elderly, Alzheimer patients, as well as for global STEM outreach, including a "Mission to Mars" virtual reality project conducted by students in Peru.
Dr. Williams ran a multi-million dollar Air Force strategic workforce development program for 10 years as its founding director before retiring to start up DLG, a student-powered, non-profit educational and scientific organization with global reach. He is a former engineering professor in brain signal processing, a Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program manager in advanced drone technologies, and an American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Engineer of the Year Award recipient.
