Gadgets, Gizmos and Gee Whiz!



Discussion and Demonstration



From high in the sky to deep in the ocean, National Geographic’s Tech Team members – Eric Berkenpas, and Mike Shepard – in their experimental think tank deep in the heart of the National Geographic headquarters, constantly seek innovative ways to capture amazing images and info about our world. The result: eye-popping research featured in National Geographic Television productions. This afternoon of technical wizardry includes a miniature video-shooting helicopter and a dangerously bright lighting contraption that captures incredible underwater images.

Moderated by Mark Bauman, Senior Vice President of Content Development, National Geographic Society. Panelists are National Geographic Tech Team members Eric Berkenpas and Mike Shepard and Corey Jasolski, National Geographic Innovation Fellow.
