TEDxFloridaTech Events

TEDxFloridaTech is looking for enthusiastic individuals who would like to be a part of this wonderful new program. We are currently accepting applications for speakers, moderators and volunteers for our events taking place in 2016.

TEDxFloridaTech is offering a variety of events:

  • TEDxFloridaTech: TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFloridaTech, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFloridaTech event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. We will offer one TEDxFloridaTech event annually.

  • TEDxFloridaTechSalon: Salon events are often small weekly or monthly events that keeps a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. They're a unique kind of gathering that TEDx organizers hold which allows the conversation to continue, in person. TEDxFloridaTech will be offering several of these events throughout the year.

  • TEDxFloridaTechWomen: TEDWomen is a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, events—and daring discussions—has sparked some of TED's most iconic moments yet. TEDxFloridaTechWomen is a one-day event that shows sessions from the event taking place in California and will take place biannually.
