Mt St Helens Institute - Ray Yurkewycz
The Mount St. Helens Institute is a non-profit organization that seeks to connect people with science and the outdoors through the lense of the one of the Northwest's most iconic landscapes and most active volcano. Whether its kids or adults, urban or rural, expert or novice, everyone comes away with an "aha!" moment. Come learn more about Mount St. Helens and the impactful work of the Institute.

Ray has been working at Mount St. Helens for the past decade and with the Institute since 2011. He is truly passionate about all things Mount St. Helens. Ray's background is in wildlife biology and plant ecology, but bringing people together around a shared vision that leverages the power of the volcano makes this his "forever job".

San Felipe Dental Project
Over 200 2nd graders in the poorest schools in San Felipe received, toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss. Students were given instructions by a local dentist on how to care for their teeth. In addition he did brief dental exams on site and provided the children with proposed dental treatments.

EPRC has sponsored school students for 12 years and we visited our 3 current (sister) scholarship students. It is a warm experience to see these girls growing and encouraged to continue their education and break the cycle of dropping out of school, getting pregnant and married at very young ages.

How self-driving cars will disrupt the economy and city planning
The shift to digital is transforming the way businesses deliver and track goods, from the point of initiation to the final destination.

Last-mile delivery, self-driving cars and trucks, delivery drone and robots, and artificial intelligence applications in logistics are all poised to change how companies send goods, how customers receive packages, and how the population gets from Point A to Point B.

This talk will focus on the disruptive impact that self-driving cars will have on technology, economy, city planning and society.Hans Witt
