TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
TED conferences bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).
TED Tuesdays, will take place at BW and allow students the opportunity to listen to a selected TED Talk and engage in discussion with one another afterwards. A specific activity may also be included to encourage a continuation of thought processes after the program.
No registration is required to attend.
9:30pm-10:30pm in the Grindstone Room.
