10th Annual Foundations of Science Breakfast
Thursday, May 16, 2013
Keynote Speaker: Eric Liu
Please join Pacific Science Center for our annual Foundations of Science Breakfast. The Breakfast is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Pacific Science Center and the impact our programs are having in communities and schools across the state. We hope you will join us for an informative and inspiring morning!
We are thrilled to have Eric Liu as the keynote speaker for the 2013 Breakfast. A best-selling author, educator and civic entrepreneur, Liu is founder of Citizen University, which promotes and teaches the art of creative citizenship. Liu served as a speechwriter for President Bill Clinton and later as the President's deputy domestic policy adviser. After the White House, he was an executive at the digital media company RealNetworks. Liu believes that "we live in an age when education is becoming more decentralized, and when social problems are becoming more complex. We all have to step up to be more engaged and creative citizens, as individuals and in our institutions." Liu will share his thoughts on the intersection of science and society, and the role he believes Pacific Science Center will play in connecting them.
Pacific Science Center thanks Barbara Hulit for serving as the Chair of the 2013 Breakfast. Hulit is the President of Fluke Corporation, Vice President of Danaher Corporation and member of Pacific Science Center's Board of Directors.
The Foundations of Science Breakfast will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Seattle. Registration opens at 7 a.m. The program begins at 7:30 a.m. and will conclude before 9 a.m.
This event is free to attend. We hope to inspire guests to make a donation that morning, with a requested minimum donation of $150. All funds raised at the Breakfast directly support Pacific Science Center's onsite and outreach education programs.
