• White House: We the (Immigrant)Geeks Videos

    White house conducted Google hangout sessions with pioneers of Science and Technology in support of role of International people in US in STEM field development. Here is collection of all 'We the Geeks' videos. Most of the people in these videos are Alumni of US Universities,Immigrants now settled in USA.

    We the (Immigrant) Geeks

    “We the Geeks" is a new series of Google+ Hangouts to highlight the future of science, technology, and innovation here in the United States. Topics such as commercial space exploration, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, turning science fiction to science fact, and others will be discussed with Administration officials and key private sector contributors. Join the conversation using the hashtag
    and be sure to sign up for email updates about future "We the Geeks" hangouts.

    You'll meet extraordinary immigrant pioneers with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), who have made amazing discoveries, developed new inventions, founded high-growth companies, and conducted remarkable research:
    1) Anousheh Ansari, co-founder of TTI and Prodea Systems; co-creator of the Ansari X Prize and one of the first self- funded space tourists
    2) Steve Chen, co-founder of MixBit (AVOS) and YouTube
    3) Ping Fu, co-founder of Geomagic and chief strategy officer of 3D Systems
    4) Mario Molina, recipient of the Nobel Prize (Chemistry, 1995) and Medal of Freedom (2013), professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California-San Diego, member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
    5) Jan Vilcek, Professor of Microbiology at New York University School of Medicine; creator of the Vilcek Prize and recipient of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation (2012)

    Diversity is one of America’s greatest assets. Attracting the broadest possible set of perspectives, skills, and ideas to our shores is critical to creating jobs, growing the economy, and keeping America on the cutting-edge of innovation.
    That's why commonsense immigration reform is so important to the science, technology, and innovation community – and it’s why we need to ensure that "geeks" from around the world continue to make America their mothership.
