TEDxColumbiaEngineering - Columbia University's independently organized TED event - will bring to light ideas worth spreading. A day filled with presentations by some of the foremost minds will seek to spark conversation, thought and productive exchange among bright intellectuals who participate.

Rethinking Normal Set to be held at Miller Theater of Columbia's Morningside Heights campus in Manhattan, TEDxColumbiaEngineering hopes to establish channels of communication between all members of the Columbia University, and New York City, community. The two sessions aim to introduce ideas and experiences that highlight 'the road less traveled', offering different perspectives and fresh takes on familiar concepts.

Created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading," the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
