Innovators & Inventors Presentation

February 1, 2024 | 6:30 p.m.

Location: Online on Zoom

Vesterheim’s traveling exhibition, Innovators & Inventors, shares the stories of problem solvers and creative thinkers in the Norwegian-American community and highlights the many inventions. There are several “firsts” featured, like the outboard motor, gasoline pump, wearable pacemaker, airport jetway, and pizza delivery bag. There are also examples of how existing ideas and products were improved and expanded. Other stories focus on women innovators, the art of innovation, and inventions that we can’t live without. In this presentation, enjoy the stories behind the “firsts” and some of the products you use every day. All invented with the hopes of making our world a better place.

This is an open online meeting of Sons of Norway Lodge 1-001 Nidaros, from the Minneapolis, Minnesota, West Area. Laurann will join the meeting remotely to share the presentation. Visitors wishing to attend the meeting may sign up for the Zoom link here.
