"Ideas Worth Spreading" at Idaho State University

TEDxISU will be a gathering of great creative thinkers, scientific minds and community leaders. Join us to celebrate the development of new knowledge and help us spread ideas that will make the world a better place.



What is TEDxISU?

TEDxISU is a student-lead event that helps turn inspiring ideas into actions. We're bringing a community of highly engaged, forward-thinking innovators, designers, educators and explorers together to illuminate, inspire and activate members of our community to expand horizons, change perceptions and foster new connections. Check out our exciting speakers. October 26 will be a day packed with conversation and collaboration about improving the world over the next decade.

Our non-profit event relies on the sponsorship of partners. To learn how to support TEDxISU contact Kallee Valentine at (208) 282-2994 or
