Your Guide To TedxPSU’s ‘5 Days Of TED’ Events
If you enjoy those TED Talks that your professor shows in class, TEDxPSU has a week of events for you. The “5 Days of TED” will begin on Monday at 11 a.m. in the HUB, and will continue at various locations across campus. The five-day event was created in preparation for TEDxPSU 2016, which will be held in the spring. The event’s Facebook page encourages students and community members to buy tickets on Eventbrite. Currently Eventbrite only says that ticket registration has ended for the Sci-Five Salon event, but you can follow the hashtag #getstarTED on Twitter and Instagram for updates.
