On April 12, The Old Grey Muzzle Tour 2013 finished center stage with Dr. Waters’ TEDx talk.
Dr. Waters was joined at the sold-out event by 20 other speakers to showcase creative progress and ingenuity. Dr. Waters captured the imagination of the audience by weaving together his personal experiences in the process of scientific discovery with how language can limit the scientific method and impede progress. Watch Dr. Waters’ inspirational performance – “The Oldest Dogs as Our Greatest Teachers: Get the Words Out of Your Eyes”. Click the video below to watch the talk.
