An Average Working Day on Visionary NASA Projects

**Kenneth is a Forbes Magazine '30 Under 30 Science' honoroee and has been working on NASA satellites since the age of 16.** In his talk, he'll tell you how he got to the point of flinging complex metal objects into the dark sky. He's completed everything from radiation testing to full-scale integration and is known for delivering thoughtful and dynamic leadership on programs of critical national and international importance. 12 years and 6 missions into his time at NASA, Kenneth is here to share what skills he still uses from his early education, what the future of engineering will look like and how you can empower the future generation of explorers. **Join Kenneth for a powerful presentation that will leave you anxious to not only advance your career but to look for the next great explorer you can influence.**


The Future of Flight

**Dr. Anita Sengupta is an extraordinary scientist.** She landed a car on Mars and made the first experiments with Virgin Hyperloop One. She's done some fascinating things in her career with an imagination sparked by her exposure to scifi and the adventures of Spock — **from science fiction to science fact at warp speed, you'll be inspired by her real life science engineering experience in this fascinating keynote.** She'll tell her breathtaking story about how she modifies existing airplanes to fly on seawater through her fast moving startup, Hydroplane Ltd.


The Universe, Unfolded: NASA Webb Space Telescope

Providing the earliest images of our universe, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has pushed the frontier of space technology and deep-space imaging to a completely new level! Through a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), its first full-color images and spectroscopic data were released on July 12, 2022. These images and data have fundamentally changed our understanding of the universe, allowing us to explore uncharted territories and revisit some old familiar sights in the universe. Hear from Dr. Kenneth Harris II, one of the lead integration engineers on the program to discuss the incredible images and innovations made possible by the JWST. What do these discoveries mean for the future of humankind both on and off this planet?
