Inspiration gives birth to innovation. Mother is the necessity of invention. Skiing and snowboarding is just plain fun. The session will present papers that look at the sport of skiing and snowboarding and the inspirational stories of chemical engineering applications that have revolutionized the sport. We will connect complex topics of momentum, mass and heat transport to the equipment, physical dynamics, biological mechanisms and emotional inspiration that leads innovative entrepreneurs to dream up new ways of changing the world while out in the mountains flying down a hill at 35 miles per hour. Come join us to get the innovative juices flowing to then bring that inspiration to the two Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence events: the "How To" Entrepreneur Workshop and The Entrepreneurial Chemical Engineer Session occurring during the Salt Lake City event.
