The Tech Museum established The Tech Awards in 2000 in
partnership with presenting sponsor Applied Materials to
celebrate technology and innovation benefiting humanity.
Since then, the program has recognized 230 laureates whose
creative applications of technology tackle crucial issues in the five
following areas: environment, economic development, education,
equality and health. A major corporation or foundation sponsors
each category: Environment (Intel); Economic Development
(BD Biosciences); Education (Microsoft); Equality (The Swanson

Foundation), and Health (Nokia).

The laureates will be honored at The Tech Awards 10th
Anniversary Gala on November 6, at the Santa Clara Convention
Center and will be joined by keynote speaker Her Majesty Queen
Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, this year's James C. Morgan Global
Humanitarian Award recipient.
