More than 200 VIP guests attended a sneak preview of Otronicon last night. The Science Center’s largest annual event, Otronicon is a celebration of technology that’s “made in Orlando, played in Orlando,” promoting the innovation that’s occurring in our backyard and its impact on how we live, learn, work and play. Speakers in last night’s presentation, included Science Center President JoAnn Newman plus Orlando City Commissioner Robert Stuart, Science Center Trustee and head of NAWCTSD/NSA Orlando Captain Steve Nakagawa and Trustee Daryl Holt, EA Sports VP and GM of EA – Tiburon.
The event was launched with a flash mob inspired by the film “Revenge of the Nerds” with dancers in nerd garb celebrating “geek chic.” Guests included Chase Smith from Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ office, Winter Park City Commissioner Sarah Sprinkel, Dick Harkey from Represenative John Mica’s office, Susan Fernandez from Senator Marco Rubio’s office, Cindy Brown from Representative Daniel Webster’s Office, David Odahowski from Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Flora Maria Garcia from United Arts of Central Florida, and Dr. Ann Manley from Dr. Phillips Charities.
