Dan Thoma’s enthusiasm for technological advances in manufacturing and his optimism about the future were infectious during his June 10 presentation at Colorado Mountain College.
Dan demonstrated how manufacturing advances have resulted in smaller, more efficient items such as pace-makers. He showed how kinetic energy can be captured by people walking and turned into usable energy. One of the prominent surprises during the program was Dan’s revelation that the largest amount of manufactured product globally is concrete.
