About this event

In the spirit of TEDx, these eminent speakers will present ideas from their diverse fields on the broad topic of science and technology. While these talks provide the benefit of learning new ideas and sparking debates, we also aim to promote collaboration by bringing together motivated and curious minded individuals to solve the biggest problems of our time.
