'The Innovators Around Us' is the Topic of CSM’s New Series ‘Live from the Velocity Center’ March 30

The College of Southern (CSM) will launch “Live from the Velocity Center,” a new series highlighting innovation and entrepreneurship in the region, this Tuesday. Episode 1 – The Innovators Around Us airs live via Zoom from 11 a.m. -12:30 p.m. March 30 featuring a round table discussion between panel experts, online viewers and attendees.

“This is an exciting time for innovators and inventors,” said CSM Velocity Center Director Hugh Burrell. “Open platforms, new ideas, new resources are everywhere. The panel members for this program have been involved in private as well as government-sponsored Science and Technology and Research and Development efforts all around our region.”

Panelists for Episode 1 – The Innovators Around Us include: The Moore Group LLC Founder and President Dale Moore; Southern Maryland Small Business Development Center Regional Director at CSM Wynne Briscoe; University of Maryland Unmanned Aircraft Systems Director Matt Scassero; and CSM Professor Dr. John Short.

The CSM Velocity Center is located in Indian Head and is described as a “giant, professional playground for innovation” as well as a place where Navy scientists and industry leaders can interact with students, have a place to tinker or conduct unclassified research and be a place where the community can have access to CSM courses. The center is approximately 13,000 square feet, is located right outside of the Naval Surface Warfare Center and aligns with the strategic plans of the region’s naval bases, as well as state and local economic development plans.

This free event will be held in person at the Velocity Center with limited seating and online via Zoom. RSVP’s are required. To register, visit www.csmd.edu/vcseries.
