Observe ‘Shark Tank’ Designed for Autistic Adults

Observe ‘Shark Tank’ Designed for Autistic Adults


Adults on the autism spectrum will participate in the Reactor Room, a “Shark Tank” type program designed to help them achieve their career aspirations, 6-8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 7, in Rice University’s BRC Auditorium, 6566 Main St., 77030. The event host, Spectrum Fusion, invites the public to join the audience and support participants. The Reactor Room program is being presented by Houston nonprofit, Spectrum Fusion, which empowers adults on the autism spectrum to achieve their full potential. During Reactor Room sessions, autistic adults present their goals to a panel of community members with expertise and connections in their area of interest. Desired outcomes might be an internship that will allow a participant to build relevant experience, an employment opportunity or connections for a business launch. From there, the panelists work with the participant, harnessing their connections, experience and ideas, to create an “Activation Plan” for achieving that outcome. The participants April 7 will include a Houston resident trying to launch his career in forensic psychology and the inventor of a mobility device that he hopes to market. The Spectrum Fusion Media Team will participate, too. The team comprises Houston-area videographers, editors, writers, graphic designers and voice-over actors on the autism spectrum. Panelists range from Harris County Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen to a Johnson & Johnson executive, and prominent researcher, Fred Oswald, Ph.D. To reserve free seating to observe the Reactor Room, visit https://spectrumfusion.org/2022-April-reactor-room/#rsvp.
