After a successful sophomore event, we have worked tirelessly to improve our audience experience in the biggest, best ways possible moving into our third year. TEDxUSU has exploded to include 19 presentations, performances and recordings packed into one half-day conference, representing the most thought-provoking content the TEDxUSU team could curate that showcases our commitment to “ideas worth spreading.”
This year’s program is a half-day conference divided into three sessions. The first and third session will be headlined by Olympic silver medalist Noelle Pikus Pace and award-winning author Orson Scott Card, and will feature talks given by Utah State faculty and students.

New this year is an interactive second session where attendees will mingle with TEDxUSU speakers, network with fellow audience members, view innovative exhibits and presentations, and help create artistic compositions. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
