TEDxDrakeU is the annual TEDx event organized by a student-led initative at Drake University. TEDxDrakeU is a half-day event with the intent to bring together bright minds in the community. The event features voices of the Drake and Des Moines community. The speakers deliver TED-style talks that are idea-focused to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.

This year, attendees will have the opportunity to list to unique and maybe even unexpected ideas shared by professors, students, and community members. With the theme being “Share your Spark,” the presenters will explore ideas that ignited their passion and interests in various topics.

The event will be in the Reading Room of Cowles Library at Drake University on Friday, March 31st starting at 1:30pm. Tickets can be purchased in the Olmsted Center at Drake University starting March 27th. Tickets are $5 when purchased in advance and $7 at the door.
