Dean Kamen
Tuesday, September 18, 2007
5:00 – 6:20 p.m.
Davis Auditorium
Medical Education Building on the University of Vermont Campus

Dean Kamen, an inventor and entrepreneur and an inspiring speaker, will address a serious issue facing society.

How can we attract the next generation to fields of Science and Technology? Society as a whole needs to start promoting careers in Science and Engineering to our youth.

We live in a technical world. Vermont, like many other states, is having a difficult time attracting and retaining a technical work force, which is essential for the growth of local businesses. If Vermont is to have a high quality of life 20 years from now, we need more skilled scientists and engineers, with a broad vision of the society we want to create.
