In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program of local, independently organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxPSU, hosted at the Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania, we combine TEDTalk videos and live speakers to spark deep discussion and connection. TEDxPSU is operated under license from TED.
Ideas Worth Spreading. TED started in 1984 as a small nonprofit conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader to include science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world.
TEDxPSU was brought to the Penn State community in 2010. The mission of the event is to bring together innovative and thought-provoking individuals from the Penn State community and the world to share ideas worth spreading. Using a blend of live talks and pre-recorded videos, TEDxPSU unites the University community and kicks off a dialogue about the challenges and opportunities facing our society.
