The first TEDxUTChattanooga meeting will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25, at UTC. The campus and community will be involved in the independently organized and officially licensed public event based on TED: Technology, Entertainment, Design conferences.
TEDxUTChattanooga will feature short talks by a select, diverse group of professors, students, and community members, all of whom will speak from their vantage points. In the spirit of progress, innovation, and the city that thought it could and did, TEDxUTChattanooga 2014 is asking: "Now what?"
“Chattanooga has such a strong spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Dr. David Levine, co-chair of the TEDxUTChattanooga committee. “People from across the country and around the world are coming to this community to explore solutions and to create new opportunities. We think UTC and Chattanooga make the perfect place to host a TEDx talk.”
A group of UTC students were the first to imagine TEDxUTChattanooga, and a UTC student-led committee is responsible for selecting the speakers.
Applications to attend the event, to volunteer, and to sponsor the event are still available.
