Science Café: I Am Potential

Science Café at the Discovery Center is a casual, educational series exploring a variety of science topics. Hear from scientists, researchers and experts in a wide range of fields.

Patrick Henry Hughes is a remarkable young man who was born without eyes and without the ability to fully straighten his arms and legs, making him unable to walk.

In the face of incredible odds, Patrick has overcome these physical challenges to excel as a musician, student, performer, and public speaker.  Patrick started playing the piano at the age of only nine months and also plays the trumpet and sings. He participated in the University of Louisville Marching Band with help from his father, Patrick John Hughes, who tirelessly maneuvered Patrick’s wheelchair through the formations during practices and games with the other 220+members of the Cardinal Marching Band. Along with the marching band, Patrick’s father assisted his son during his classes.

Patrick Henry and his father and have been featured on ESPN, Oprah, the Ellen Show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, the Today Show, all the major news outlets, The Grand Ole Opry, People Magazine and more publications.

Their first book, I Am Potential, is published and available all around the world in different languages. It has been made into a feature length film. Patrick has recorded two CDs.
