The two-time Emmy® Award winning Saturday morning show comes to life in a brand new production. Like the award-winning television show, The Henry Ford’s INNOVATION NATION – LIVE! will inspire audiences with entertaining and educational stories about yesterday and today’s visionaries and innovators – highlighting major turning points in the past and present that influenced the fields of science, technology, engineering, math, the environment and social justice.

Like the television show the live show will feature two correspondents (along with other cast members that are featured in various vignettes throughout the show) that will narrate the evening, engage with the audience and bridge between stories of innovators of the past and how they are influencing science, technology, agriculture, design, making and social justice movements of today. Luminaries of the past including Henry Ford, The Wright Brothers, Rosa Parks and George Washington Carver among others will jump to life on stage. Their achievements will be highlighted and reflected by showing examples of present day innovations.
