The 2019 Child of the Sun Distinguished Speakers Series examines how technology and innovation push the boundaries of human experience. While new technologies have always allowed us to reimagine and redefine what is possible, the unprecedented scope and speed of contemporary technological innovation presents extraordinary opportunities as well as unique challenges. A history-making NASA rocket scientist, a bestselling author on technology and culture, and a biomedical engineer and entrepreneur join us this year to explore these opportunities and challenges.
The Child of the Sun Distinguished Speakers Series brings speakers of national and international renown to the Florida Southern College campus and Lakeland community several times a year to explore some of the most compelling issues and events of our times. Featuring highly regarded experts, the series aims to provoke thought, stimulate conversation, and inspire action on a wide range of topics.
