Today, the Orlando Science Center held the Inspire Science Breakfast. The event is an opportunity to celebrate the Science Center's role as a vital community resource that ignites the spark for tomorrow's leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The 2013 edition featured special guests that truly exemplify the Science Center's mission to inspire science learning for life. Dr. Morgan Cable, the first-ever winner of the Dr. Ying Competition, was present to speak to the power the Science Center has in inspiring future scientists, doctors and teachers.

The Orlando Science Center also paid tribute to a man that has given so much via knowledge, scientific discovery and philanthropy as Dr. Nelson Ying became the first-ever recipient of the President's Star Maker Award.

Guests had an opportunity to get involved by making a donation, pledging to volunteer and sharing the vision of the Science Center in our community. You, too, can make a difference just as they did. To start, explore the "Support' section of our website.

On Thursday, April 3rd, Orlando Science Center hosted the Inspire Science Breakfast. The event is an opportunity to celebrate the Science Center's role as a vital community resource that ignites the spark for tomorrow's leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The event included several notable speakers, including Shiv Gaglani and Dr. Sandy Shugart.

Shiv Gaglani, an MD/MBA candidate at the John Hopkins School of Medicine and Harvard Business School, is passionate about medical and educational innovation, having co-founded two accelerator-backed startups; one in education called Osmosis, and the other in medicine called Smartphone Physical. Gaglani is also a three-time winner of the Dr. Nelson Ying Science Competition here at Orlando Science Center!

Dr. Sandy Shugart, president of Valencia Community College since January, 2000, also spoke at Inspire Science Breakfast. For more than a decade, Dr. Shugart has led the college in a process of deep change designed to put student learning first and achieve quantum improvements in completion. He is also the winner of the 2011 inaugural Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence; an award that named Valencia College the nation's top community college.

Orlando Science Center's vision is to be the community partner that fosters creativity and curiosity for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM); which stimulates the kind of innovation that transforms our economy and enhances lives. It is your continued support that allows us to make that vision a reality. Check out photos of this year's Inspire Science Breakfast below, and be sure to mark your calendar for next year!
