"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." --Carl Sagan

What if we found life on Mars? What if we completed apprenticeships instead of college? What if everyone in the company was a co-president? What if we taught young athletes to develop their character? What if we created a middle school focused on math and science? What if everyone had access to libraries? What if we used technology to create new learning models?

What if we learned something new?

Expert speakers from across the country. An audience of 500. A day of relevance, inspiration, and connections.
