0:16 [Arthur Daemmrich, Director, Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation] "We're at Military Invention Day and we're focusing here on new technologies developed by the armed forces or by independent firms for the armed forces. The idea is to focus on emerging new technologies, what's going to impact all our lives in the future, how these technologies will come into our daily lives. But also, we want to get people to engage and learn about new technology, and also feel empowered to control the technologies in their lives."

1:45 [Soldier's wife] "I love to expose our children to STEM type activities such as these, so they can know what options there are."
1:54 [Arthur Daemmrich] "As a team the Lemelson Center really focuses on using perspectives from the history, study of inventors and innovations, to then turn around and communicate to people, but also excite them about the technologies that are coming in the future and how they themselves can be inventors and be inventive in their daily lives."
