Imagine if you could turn cow manure into electricity. Or power a makeshift hospital after an earthquake with a hand-carried "solar suitcase." These are some ideas that have won the San Jose Tech museum-sponsored Tech Awards -- monetary prizes given annually to companies, individuals and non-profits for new inventions or technological innovations that benefit humanity. In this special broadcast from KQED Silicon Valley, the San Jose Tech museum announces the 2012 Tech Awards laureates.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • David Whitman, vice president of The Tech Awards
  • Matt Flannery, founder and CEO of Kiva, an organization that helps connect low-income entrepreneurs with micro-finance loans, and a Tech Awards laureate
