October 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What’s the role of super-resolution microscopy in studying Alzheimer’s? What can we learn about the earliest stages of heart disease? How can artificial intelligence help people make personal decisions? What will healing therapies look like in the future? The experts asking – and answering – these questions are among the featured speakers at our 2019 Innovator Symposium.

Acera’s annual Innovator Symposium is a free community event that showcases these scientists and inventors – and their groundbreaking work – for people of all ages to enjoy. Last year, more than 150 kids, adults, researchers, and tinkerers attended to explore the worlds of neuroscience, nanomaterials, 3D printable clothing, and wearable biometric technology. 

There are no assumptions about what content is “too old” or “too young” for attendees at this unique and interactive event; children and adults alike can meet and speak with leading scientists. It’s one of the many ways Acera makes science accessible to all ages and learning styles, and makes connections to innovations happening in the real world.
