During this period of growing public and policy attention to water and
health, technology has emerged as a key element in creating a better,
healthier world. World-renowned inventor Dean Kamen will discuss two of
his recent inventions, one that generates power, and another that turns
polluted water into a potable drink. Kamen is known for a series of
successful inventions, including an implantable insulin pump, a portable
dialysis machine, and an artificial arm, as well as the Segway personal
transporter.

Kamen was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1997,
received the Heinz Award in 1998, and was awarded the National Medal of
Technology in 2000. In 2002, he received the Lemelson-MIT Prize, and in
May 2005, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
Among Kamen's proudest accomplishments is founding FIRST (For
Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization
dedicated to motivating the next generation to understand, use, and
enjoy science and technology.
