Main Speaker : John Henry Lienhard IV
John Henry Lienhard IV (born 1930) is Professor Emeritus of mechanical engineering and history at The University of Houston.

Music : Ken Gaines
Houston area singer/songwriter, guitarist, producer, and teacher Ken Gaines has the goal of writing great songs in just about every genre and style you can come up with. "For all the great songs that have been written I belong to a wonderful tribe who believe there are a least as many great ones still to be written." His voice has the range to cover all styles and his supple guitar work lays down arrangements instead of just chords. His lyrics are both powerful and poetic and highlight the skills of a story teller and observer of life. In 2005 he was voted Singer Songwriter of the Year by the Academy of Texas Music and in 2007 his song "Einstein's Violin" was nominated Song of the Year at the Texas Music Awards.
