The University of Idaho’s student-led TEDxUIdaho event will explore ideas ranging from the art of science to leaving abusive relationships during the fifth annual event from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 27, in the U of I Administration Building Auditorium, Moscow.
With a theme of “Brave,” the event features 7 speakers, including U of I graduate and undergraduate students and community members. Talks include research on the rain on Titan, how to ethically report on Native Americans, and the courageous story of a woman leaving an abusive relationship. Other topics include how medical professionals should take care of their mental health and the science of hope.
“This year’s event, while presenting talks from several thematic areas just like previous events, is very special to us,” said Yvonne Nyavor, who started the TEDx program at U of I in 2015. ‘We’re very excited because this event has speakers who are brave enough to share their stories and we couldn’t be prouder of the ideas that they will present on April 27.’
