FRAMINGHAM – The Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni (IAFSA) Coffee and Conversations speaker series continues March 24 at 10 a.m. with Dr. Robert Krim, author of Boston Made: From Revolution to Robotics, Innovations that changed the world.
For four hundred years, Boston has been at the forefront of the world-changing innovation from starting
the country’s first public school to becoming the first state to end slavery and giving birth to the
telephone and Facebook.
Krim will discuss how he identified the top 50 innovations from his list of 400, and how Framingham State is woven into two of them.
Please RSVP – 508-872-9770 or firstname.lastname@example.org to attend in person at 42 Adams Road in
Framingham or to receive the Zoom Link.
Robert Krim is a professor at Framingham State University and founded the Entrepreneur Innovation
Center at FSU.
“I chose to make Framingham State University my current and the last stop in my career (I am a
professor there now) after spending so many years studying innovation, because it has such a rich
history of innovation. The great American educational innovator Horace Mann developed and opened
this college to be the first college in the US to teach teachers how to teach. It was the keystone of
setting up Massachusetts’ public education system, and it was established as the 8th women’s college in the US.”
The Coffee and Conversations monthly series creates a forum for fellowship amongst FSC/FSU alumni
and the larger community. Each session will showcase the accomplishments of one FSC/FSU alumni or
related person who will provide an overview of their work since graduating.
IAFSA is a self-governing, non-profit organization established in 1874 by dedicated alumni, the Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni continues its tradition of service by receiving and administering funds that provide scholarship and benevolent assistance while maintaining Alumni House and collaborating with Framingham State University in pursuit of its mission.
