Nerf gaming and special photo op/autograph session with SoonerCon’s featured science guest, Dr. Lonnie Johnson. A bona-fide “rocket scientist,” Dr. Johnson has just one mission—to ensure the world has enough energy for a prosperous future. Although he has devoted his life to solving some of the world’s most complex technological problems, he is best known for his widely popular invention, the Super Soaker water gun. Dr. Johnson is a prolific inventor and holds more than 100 patents, the vast majority of which are energy-related.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Johnson STEM Activity Center in Dr. Johnson’s hometown, Atlanta, GA. Learn more at http://johnsonstem.org/. Donation participation tiers: $20-$30.
