What is the Fusion Theme?
The theme is “Imagineers of Tomorrow”. The combination of Imagination and Engineering is even more relevant today as we navigate the ‘new normal’ – and not just do what we did before, but imagine a better path and build it! Fusion this year is our World’s Fair bringing together imagineers from around the world to showcase innovative techniques, learn new ways of doing things, tackle challenges, and reimagine the possible!
What is an Imagineer?
An Imagineer is someone who:
- devises and implements a new or highly imaginative concept or technology
- is skilled in implementing creative ideas into practical form
- is an innovator willing to create and try new things and build something new in their field of work
How are Fusion attendees Imagineers?
Fusion attendees are paving the path of education and online learning today. Most recently they have adapted quickly to change and learn new ways of teaching, training, and working. They are also the ones actively transforming the way the world learns….today!
