Turning Crazy Ideas Into Reality - Is creativity enough? What about skill, knowledge or hard work? Alone they may not be but combined they represent a powerful formula for success.  

Dr. Glenn will discuss his two cutting-edge scientific and technological endeavors that require this formula to succeed. The Electronic Alchemy eforge is a 3D printer capable of creating functional electronic devices. He will discuss the product’s development from conception to realization. Dr. Glenn will also discuss his research in Experimental Spacetime Distortion, an effort to show that a faster than light warp drive might be possible. From his academic beginnings at the University of Maryland at College Park, Dr. Glenn will share his journey and show how struggle creates the drive and perseverance critical for successful endeavors.
