The AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors are partnering with the IBM Academy of Technology and the IBM Global Technology Community to provide
a human face to some of the inventions that have contributed to a safe planet. Invention and innovation for global good through vehicles such as sustainable technologies, human social programs and global health awareness is critical for the progression of humanity. The inventor stories inspire a broad audience to engage in creative impact thinking.

The first session on Dec 14, 2017, featured three world-renowned inventors along with an executive from AAAS. A subsequent session on Jan 10, 2018, will showcase another four ambassadors’ accomplishments. There will be replays of featured inventors for both sessions.
