TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "Ideas Worth Spreading." TEDxDartmouth seeks to instill a deep sense of curiosity in our community, increase awareness of interdisciplinary studies, and foster excitement for lifelong learning beyond one’s prior experiences. Dartmouth strives to expand its students’ horizons and develop an appreciation for the liberal arts and experiential learning. TEDxDartmouth connects our audience to diverse research and ideas beyond the classroom, and provides students with an opportunity to showcase their interests and spark discussion across disciplines. The event is a great networking opportunity for students and community members in the Upper Valley to engage with experts in their field.
