Featured Speakers and Presenters
We’re excited to once again welcome Gray Bright, senior director of game design at Hasbro Games, as our host for the Invention Convention Americas Awards Ceremony. With his work, Gray innovates on a variety of beloved family board games and his passion for inventing led to his participation in the television show America’s Greatest Makers in 2017.
This year’s special keynote speaker will be Jay Flores, an inspirational Global STEM Ambassador, founder of Invent the Change, star on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior and creator of the “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science” program. We’re thrilled to have Jay share his story and passion with our inventors.
