Ask Questions, Seek Answers

How can trash fuel our world?
How can teens be empowered to reject extremism?
How can tissue engineering transform the way drugs are designed?
How can taking your pen off the paper let you draw things exactly as you imagine?
How can training new doctors and nurses in resource-limited countries cure more than people?

At TEDxBoston 2013, where x = independently organized TED event, we honor local innovators who ask tough questions and have the passion, curiosity, and tenacity to find answers. Come join the journey with Boston’s brightest thinkers and boldest doers.
