Students will engage with more than 25 speakers sharing their big ideas in science, medicine, entrepreneurship and the arts. Half of the speaker slate consists of innovators and change-makers under the age of 25.
Students will also experience more than a dozen hands-on salons. Members of the Malin Space Science Systems Mars Curiosity rover team will feature a replica of the rover and Life Technologies will provide an exploration of genomics.
There will also be various human interaction experiences inspired by Soul Pancake including a huge Peer Assisted Listeners/Leaders (PALs) ball pit to promote student connectedness.
The event will also include a conversation couch, writing areas to share thoughts and ideas, meditation with Jeffrey Zlotnik, photo opportunities with Outside the Lens, and tai chi with Matt Wolf. More than 100 artists from Canyon Crest Academy including dancers, musicians and vocalists will also perform a piece created around the theme "Unlimited."
