2020 Gala Video: A Creative Tech Experience

We pushed the boundaries of innovation for TSCW’s 2nd Annual Global Gala to pay tribute to Nikola Tesla and our Honoree, Vint Cerf, “One of the Fathers of the Internet.” The program was a unique mix of tech entertainment and demos, virtual magic, music, food and good will. Filmmaker and Tesla historian Joseph Sikorski captured it all in this fast-paced recap:

Congratulations SATYA SHARMA: Wardenclyffe Brick Recipient

Our warmest thanks and congratulations to supporter Satya Sharma, winner of an original brick from Wardenclyffe laboratory! The names of all Gala guests were entered in a random drawing to receive a brick that was recently reclaimed during renovations to the chimney. The circa 1901 brick is a special piece of history that symbolizes Wardenclyffe’s permanence and the enduring strength of Tesla’s legacy.

The support and generosity we received from the Gala supports TSCW’s mission to develop the site of Nikola Tesla’s last remaining laboratory into a transformative global science center that embraces his bold spirit of invention, provides innovative learning experiences, fosters the advancement of new technologies, and preserves his legacy in the Tesla Museum.
