Spirit of Apollo 11 Innovation Showcase

Join us for the “Spirit of Apollo 11 Innovation Showcase” to celebrate the spirit of the Apollo 11 mission. To honor the notion of “doing something that's never been done before,” we're showcasing the student startup teams who recently completed Purdue Foundry Firestarter alongside other great aerospace innovators like David A. Spencer, Associate Professor, School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Director, Space Flight Projects Laboratory. Some examples of recent graduates ideas include flying cars, soybean windshield wiper fluid, digital airline food service and consumer physical tracking in retail spaces.

In addition, there will be researched recently featured by The Creators Cloud on hand so you can ask even more questions about their ground-breaking research.

Come to the gathering for free food, giveaways, fun and to meet people that are taking their first giant steps toward world-changing innovation.
