Travel to the edges of time and space with keynote speaker Brian Greene for a one-of-a-kind presentation that will transform the ballroom into outer space, utilizing visual imagery to bring science to life. Brian will guide guests through a 30-minute odyssey from the Big Bang and far into the future about how humans have failed and triumphed in our quest for cosmic understanding. After the keynote, a panel of high school students will join Brian on stage for a discussion. Guests will leave inspired and in wonder for the role that science plays in all aspects of our lives, including school and work.
Greene is a professor of Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University, best-selling author, and co-founder of The World Science Festival. His latest best-selling release, “Until the End of Time,” is a breathtaking exploration of the cosmos and our quest to understand it and was listed as one of the “100 Notable Books of 2020” by the New York Times. Greene is a frequent television guest, joining Stephen Colbert eight times and playing himself in an episode of “The Big Bang Theory.”
The event will also feature emcee Vineeta Sawkar, musical guest David Smith, and the Student Spotlight competition.
