Beyond his wildly-popular invention, the Super Soaker water gun, and his work on high-performance Nerf dart guns, Dr. Lonnie Johnson has devoted his life to solving some of the world’s most complex technological problems. He has received more than 100 patents, many of which are related to clean energy. In an Innovative Lives program on February 2, 2017, economist Dr. Lisa Cook interviewed Dr. Johnson about his fascinating career, followed by questions from the audience. After the program, guests had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Johnson informally and to visit our Spark!Lab hands-on invention center.
