Huntsville, Ala. ---- A renowned inventor and Alabama Inventors Hall of Fame inductee will speak on the Alabama A&M University campus for the inaugural event of the Dean's Speaker Series for the College of Engineering, Technology and Physical Sciences.

 

Dr. Lonnie Johnson, a noted engineer and inventor, will address the AAMU family JohnsonLonnie.jpg
and public at Arthur J. Bond Hall (engineering building) auditorium on the AAMU campus on Thursday, January 31, at 6 p.m.

 

With over 100 patents, Dr. Johnson is one of his generation’s most prolific inventors.  Born Mobile, Ala., Johnson was exposed to inventing at an early age by his father, who taught him and his siblings how to repair various household items.

 

Johnson received a mathematics scholarship at Tuskegee University, where he earned his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 1973 and a master's degree in nuclear engineering in 1975.

 

Propelled by the success of the Super Soaker, Johnson founded his own company, Johnson Research & Development and went on to acquire numerous patents. His company has continued to innovate, creating improved radon detectors, heat pumps and lithium battery products, as well as new toy concepts.

 

For his contributions to science and his great success with the Super Soaker, Dr. Johnson was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2000.  He was also identified as one of the 50 most influential African Americans in technology for 2011.
