Calling all inventors. Yeah, you Einstein, we need your expertise. The Miami Science Museum is hosting a charity race called the Patently Impossible Project on Nov. 1, 2012.
Here's how it works: You get together members of the Miami legal and business community in one room. You give them cocktails provided by Grey Goose and Heineken. Each participant gets various tools and parts to tinker with. And get this – the only instructions are on a patent registration form. Say what? Yeah, the lawyers had to make it complicated. Then the participants feverishly race to assemble a patented invention. First one to make it happen wins. Sounds entertaining, doesn't it?
What are you waiting for? Sign up. At the very least, come watch the action from the sidelines, cheer on your colleagues and "bet" on your favorite contestant by purchasing raffle tickets. After the competition, everybody hangs out, has a drink or two and chows down on free appetizers. The evening ends with a silent auction and proceeds benefit Dade Legal Aid, a non-profit law firm that provides free legal services to low-income residents of Miami-Dade County.
When: Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Miami Science Museum
Hosted by: The Intellectual Property Committee of the Dade County Bar Association. RSVP to Committee Chair, Jaime Rich Vining at firstname.lastname@example.org or (305) 777-1720.
