Register online for the Changemaker Showcase.

The UBC Changemaker Showcase features keynote speaker Eden Full, a software/mechanical engineer interested in building products to solve society’s biggest problems. She is the inventor of the SunSaluter, a low-cost mechanism that optimizes solar panels while providing clean water for rural, off-grid communities in sixteen countries. Named one of the 30 under 30 in Forbes’ Energy category three years in a row, Eden studied Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Robotics & Intelligent Systems at Princeton University. Proudly Canadian, she was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, but now lives in New York City.
