Florida A&M University (FAMU) will host its inaugural Innovation Showcase (iShow), on Friday, November 15 from 4- 7 p.m. at the FAMU Foundation, 625 E. Tennessee Street.
The showcase will highlight FAMU’s faculty, staff and students who are “innovating today for a better tomorrow.” Guests can meet and interact with inventors, hear about their extraordinary innovations from agriculture, human resources and the natural, health, environmental and social sciences.
November has been designated as National Entrepreneurship Month. The growth of the nation’s economy linked to business start-ups by entrepreneurs is responsible for most of the new jobs created in the country.
Other research to be on display at the iShow includes: Pharmaceuticals that have shown great promise for treating cancers, Parkinson’s disease, and MRSA (commonly known as the “super bug”); by-products from Muscadine grapes that have rich components (These nutritious snacks contain no artificial chemicals or preservatives); finger flags that are designed to assist in engaging fans at sports activities; and smart moisture alert pads that can prove to be life-saving for the health profession.
