MK HALEY, OCT 21, 2017 -


When WHAT you do affects who you are, and when HOW you do it has the potential to impact the world.

Join us for the September Moonshot Night to explore how the history and expertise of Themed Entertainment Design can contribute to the development of Transformative Experiences.

It’s well understood that experiences make us happier than things, and that humans are naturally altruistic. What are the opportunities in the marketplace for Transformative Experiences that not only strive to make the world a better place, but positively impact each individual participant as well?

"That's what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination and instill hope again, and again, and again.” - Walt Disney

Speaker: Mk Haley, Former FSU Entrepreneur in Residence & Disney Imagineer

Mk Haley has been with The Walt Disney Company since 1994 serving primarily with Walt Disney Imagineering in both technical and creative roles with the Virtual Reality teams, R&D, Special FX, Show Quality Services, and the Disney Research Labs.

She is also the Entrepreneur in Residence in the FSU College of Fine Arts working in an exciting new informal area of study focusing on Environmental Storytelling.

NON-PROFIT SHOWCASE: Attendees will meet and greet some of the non-profit resources in our community that you may not know about. Each booth visit earns another chance to win a FREE DAY with Mk and 2 more of your guests at a Disney Park where you'll get to see the power of sharing transformational experiences firsthand.*

Are we man, machine...or both?

We now live in a world where we can imagine, design, and create living organisms. The capacity to program living cells will have a profound impact on our health, happiness, and prosperity.

At Moonshot Night Engineering Life, our speaker, Dr. Cesar Rodriguez, will share his work in cell engineering and the moment when he realized the impact of his research on him and you.

Are we alone?

In the next 50 years, we will answer this profound question.

There are a hundred billion stars in our galaxy, and astronomers have recently determined that nearly every one of them has a planet. Do any of these planets harbor life, or are we alone in our galaxy? This profound question represents humanity's next great frontier. During the next Moonshot Night event, astronomer and FSU professor Jeremiah Murphy will be presenting our progress in addressing this question so far, and will lead a discussion on how we can rise to this challenge and answer this profound question in the next 50 years.
