TEDxSUU is the culminating event for a semester long Honors course that uses TED.com as its topic, text book, and source of inspiration. Each week students write thought papers and participate in senior seminar discussions based on a featured TED Talk. This year's topics have run the gamut from cyborgs with Amber Case to symbiosis with Pilobolus. At the conclusion of the course we sponsor a PAM (Passion-Academics-Media) event where each student presents a short TED-like Talk around his/her idea worth spreading. Attendees and classmates review each presentation and the best are invited to speak at the TEDxSUU event.
Speakers may not be confirmed. Check event website for more information.
