TEDxCaltech was an unprecedented event for Caltech bringing together innovators, explorers, teachers and learners for an exhilarating day of collaboration, conversation and celebration. Inspired by Caltech’s own Richard Feynman, Nobel laureate, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around “curious character,” and with the theme “Feynman’s Vision: The Next 50 Years,” TEDxCaltech introduced attendees to two of Feynman’s core philosophies: making science accessible and the resultant pleasure of finding things out. TEDxCaltech had 27 speakers, plus 5 student speakers, one 11-time Grammy winning musician, a poet, two skits, a surprise appearance by Stephen Hawking, 100+ volunteers, and a Tuvan throat singer. It was an exciting and entertaining intellectual adventure! The talks and performances have been posted here: http://tedxcaltech.com/speakers.
