CANCELLED: The Art and Science of Inventing with Andini Makosinski
Friday, October 13 at 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
Join us for a conversation with Andini Makosinski as we discuss inventing and the importance of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math).
Andini Makosinski is a Filipina-Polish Canadian inventor, writer, and popular in-demand speaker. An all round 21st century Renaissance woman, Andini is best known for her invention of the Hollow Flashlight, a flashlight that runs off the heat of the human hand, and the eDrink, a coffee mug that harvests the excess heat of your hot drink and converts it into electricity to charge your phone. She is currently writing her first book, focused on the inventing mindset, which is set to be released by a major publisher in Spring 2024. Andini has given five TEDx talks, is a brand ambassador for Maybelline’s new Green Edition sustainable makeup line, one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30, Time Magazine’s 30 Under 30 World Changers, Entrepreneur Magazine’s Young Millionaires, Glamour Magazine’s College Women of the Year, and Popular Science’s Young Inventor of the Year.
