Building Bionics

Building Bionics: How technologies are going to enhance the human body and end physical disability. Bionics presents a unique opportunity to address the unmet needs of millions of individuals living with physical disabilities. Critical to this goal is the development of artificial systems and technologies that can merge with the human body – restoring, replacing or augmenting its capabilities. In this talk, Dr. Lenzi will present ongoing work at the Utah Bionic Engineering Lab to advance the science of bionics. He’ll describe novel electromechanical designs that will empower next-generation bionic limbs to match the strength and speed of biological legs. He’ll demonstrate intelligent control systems that synchronize the movements of the bionic leg with the human nervous system, enabling individuals with amputation to perform activities that are impossible with conventional prostheses. Finally, Dr. Lenzi will discuss critical challenges and areas of future research that must advance for bionics to become a part of our lives.

Holi Festival of Colors Spanish Fork

World’s Greatest Chant & Dance Party: Interactive Bollywood & Bhakti Dance, Mantra Bands, Dj’s, Yoga, Cuisine, Crafts, Color Throws on the Hour, Free Hugs, Lotsa Love Holi is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion. The Holi Festival takes its name from an evil witch who lived thousands of years ago. Her name was Holika. She had a boon not to be burned even if she stepped into fire. She misused this benediction to burn many babies by carrying them into fires. However, when she tried to do the same to a five year old Krishna devotee named Prahlad, she got burned instead, while Prahlad emerged from the fire unharmed. Prahlad\’s constant habit was to chant the names of God, Hare Krishna Hare Krshna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Thus taking shelter of the Lord through His Holy Names the Supreme protected him. This year, realizing that Holi has developed a national following especially among college festival-goers, we are preparing more parking and more colors (by far) than ever before. The music, the dance, the worship, the facilities — everything is being upgraded.

Tickets and items purchased are available for pick-up at the event. Unredeemed tickets purchased for previous Festivals of Colors that were postponed due to COVID-19 are redeemable at this event. Kids 12 and under are FREE.
