A one-day educational symposium preceding the Annual Gathering and open to the public, the 2018 Mensa Foundation Colloquium will explore the evolution and revolution of manufacturing in the 21st century.
For decades now, manufacturing has been evolving, driven by macro- and micro-economic forces as well as advances in technology. Today, it is at a crossroads, which makes Indianapolis a fitting location to examine the economic, technological, educational, and geopolitical ramifications of how things are made and distributed.
Past Colloquiums have explored such topics as the health care of catastrophes, crime scene forensics, and the ever-shrinking gap between science and science fiction. Speakers have ranged from Pulitzer Prize winners, bestselling authors, world renowned scientists, and leading academics.
