Guest Speaker for March 1, 2016 – Krissa Watry, Dynepic Inc.

Krissa WatryThe East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will welcome Krissa Watry, Co-Founder/President/CEO of Dynepic Inc. as our guest speaker at the March 1st club meeting.

Dynepic is a women owned, veteran owned business that is the brain child of Co-Founders Krissa Watry, a USAF Academy and MIT educated engineer, and Jacqueline Arn, a 40+ year educator. Krissa partnered with Jacque after spending almost 10 years in the aerospace sector as a USAF officer and as a civilian designing and leading cutting edge technology development programs for DoD, NASA, and commercial space.  She even has two boxes that have docked with the International Space Station from her time leading Program Operations at Andrews Space, Inc (now Spaceflight Industries).

But now Krissa has set out on a new mission, along with longtime educator Jacque – to inspire the next generation through play by making toys “smart” and kids even smarter. Kids today are having to choose between the static toys that sit on their toy shelf and the digital playground that exists on the 2D screen.

Dynepic, a National Science Foundation funded company, is focused on building the Internet of Toys™ (IoToys™), a playground to connect toys with a common language, cloud content, and applications for new and interconnected play patterns – moving play beyond two dimensions again.  Dynepic is currently hard at work to launch its first service called iOKids – a secure, social gateway to the Internet of Toys. iOKids will make it easy to build and launch social and community experiences for kids, all while parents can easily manage who their children interact with online.
