PPPL hosts ballot for top innovation contest
New Jersey has long been a cradle of innovation, from the creation of cutting edge fusion machines at PPPL to the invention of everything from the transistor to bubble wrap. For the duration of 2014, as state residents celebrate the 350th birthday of the founding of New Jersey, an organization known as newjersey350 is highlighting the state’s outstanding record on the key themes of innovation, diversity, and liberty.
As part of this celebration, New Jerseyans are being invited to visit a voting website where residents can cast a ballot for the state’s top home-grown inventions. Will it be the light bulb or the TV dinner? Air conditioning or ACE inhibitors? You can decide. Results will be announced at the Celebration Innovation Gala on Oct. 30 at the Palace in Somerset hosted by the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and NJBIZ magazine.
PPPL has its own rich history of innovation that New Jersey residents can enjoy perusing here.
