Event Description:Michio Kaku is one of the most widely renowned physicists in the world. His futurist knowledge is reflected in his three The New York Times best sellers, Physics of the Future, Physics of the Impossible and his latest book, The Future of the Mind, which reveals amazing scientific discoveries that will change our lives. A frequent guest on international radio and television shows, the Emmy- nominated Kaku has appeared in many major science specials. This evening, you’ll learn astonishing research in his talk, “The Future of the Mind.” To attend, you can purchase single meeting tickets in one of two venues at The Mendel Center, Lake Michigan College. In Upton Hall you will see Kaku in person and have an opportunity to ask him your questions. Choose between a Dinner Ticket which includes a sit-down full meal or a Speaker- Only ticket which does not include a meal, but offers theater-style seating. Both seating arrangements are equally near the podium. A cash bar is available to all ticket holders during a social time held prior to the talk. The second venue is in the Mainstage Theater, where you will enjoy complimentary light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar during a social hour. The speaker will then come in person to the theater to answer your questions during a 20-minute Q&A. Next, you will watch a live broadcast of the speech held in Upton Hall on a large screen in Mainstage. Both venues are excellent opportunities to network with area thought leaders as well as gain deeper insights about current issues from this nationally-renowned guest.
