Inventor Dr. Lonnie Johnson on the Power of Perseverance

Lonnie Johnson (CEO, Johnson Battery Technologies)

Location: Center Stage

Date: Tuesday, February 5

Time: 2:00pm - 2:30pm

Track: Center Stage

Vault Recording: TBD

He’s best known for inventing a toy, the Super Soaker water gun, but Dr. Lonnie Johnson is a bonafide rocket scientist with a serious mission: to ensure the world has enough energy for a prosperous future. Now, he’s working to develop ceramic solid-state batteries that can power the Internet of Things; lithium-air batteries that can push electric vehicles to 1,000 miles on a single charge; and the JTEC heat engine, an invention that an energy expert at the National Science Foundation called “possibly the greatest on Earth.” In this session, Johnson will discuss these exciting inventions and reflect on his eclectic career.
