Welcome to Sacramento Adventist Academy's Robotics Program

SlingShot focuses on FIRST founder, noted inventor Dean Kamen, his fascinating life, and his 15-year quest to solve the world's water crisis. A technological genius with a provocative worldview, Kamen is an inspiration for future scientists. His inventions help people in need and ease suffering. SlingShot is about an indomitable man who just might have enough passion and innovative thinking to create a solution for a crisis affecting billions.

Kamen lives in a house with secret passages, a closet full of denim clothes and a helicopter garage. His latest passion: the SlingShot water purification system created to obliterate half of human illness on the planet. Kamen reminisces about improving home dialysis technology and choosing to forego parenthood while lamenting he has only one lifetime for inventing.

SlingShot is both an inspirational character study and a look at Kamen’s vapor compression distiller from its earliest development through recent trials in rural Ghana and beyond.
