Family Series: Book-It Repertory Theatre presents WHOOSH! Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions

February 17 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

A story of a cool idea with a big splash! You know the Super Soaker––one of the top 20 toys of all time. An accidental discovery brought it into being: experimenting with a new cooling system for refrigerators and air conditioners, inventor Lonnie Johnson instead built the mechanics for the iconic toy. A love for rockets and robots was evident in Johnson’s early life. Growing up in a house full of brothers and sisters, he demonstrated persistence and a passion for problem-solving, the cornerstone of his career as an engineer and work with NASA. Yet his invention of the Super Soaker water gun made the most memorable splash in popular culture.
