Event Schedule

It's hard to believe, but we're already booking dates for fall '18. SWITCHED ON is in development as a film.  Meanwhile, I'm busy with my car business, teaching, speaking, and advocacy work as well.  There's a lot going on!
Would you like to bring me to your college or conference? If so, contact Tom Gagnon or Sally Itterly, my speaking representatives at The Lavin Agency. Do you want to set up a program in your elementary, middle, or high school? I handle those directly; write me at john@johnrobison.com.

Discovery Science Channel
I was profiled in an episode of INGENIOUS MINDS on Discovery Science. The show is rerun with some frequency; check the Discovery Science Channel website for details.  Meanwhile, you can watch it here on YouTube
