ML0099 - PWX 2018 Tuesday General Session - Jason Latimer

Sep 25, 2018 3:50pm


Description

Jason Latimer has spent his entire life asking one question, “What is possible?” In pursuit of this question, his ongoing education spans multiple fields including mathematics, applied physics, chemistry, perceptual psychology, and economics. Jason’s quest for knowledge has led to an entirely new paradigm that unites science and magic!

As a magician, Jason’s performances are unprecedented with seventeen consecutive championship titles and awards for his work, including the highest honor the world of magic bestows – The Grand Prix “Best Overall” World Champion of Magic.

In science, Jason is the Curator of Impossible Science at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in San Diego, California. There, he continues his research on making “impossibilities” possible and developing curriculum that inspires wonder and showing young audiences how asking the right questions can change everything.

Jason is also breaking ground as host of Comic Con HQ’s digital platform original series “Impossible Science.” This 10-episode show explores how previously “impossible” science fiction ideas are now being brought to life by scientists and engineers who are asking the right questions and challenging the “known” paradigm. 

Also, Jason was just named one of the top influencers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) by @Onalytica.

Jason’s presentations captivate audiences with jaw-dropping effects, but it’s his infectious love for the unknown that inspires audiences to join in and ask: “What is possible?”
