JUNE 25-30, 2016

Would you like to get an idea of what it’s like to attend TEDSummit?  To get the full experience, follow TEDxLancaster on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for a virtual view as Bob Vasile, our Executive Director, takes you inside this exclusive event.  This weeklong summit starts June 25th in Banff, Alberta, and only 1,000 people worldwide have been selected to attend.  It includes the TEDxGlobal Forum, which will help direct the future of TEDx events worldwide.  It also includes TED speakers and unique seminars.  Bob has been selected to participate in the CRISPR seminar.  CRISPR-Cas9 is a new genome editing technology that is revolutionizing genetic engineering. It has been likened to a word processor for DNA.  In this hands-on class, participants will insert the CRISPR system into brewer's yeast to edit out a gene.  Follow TEDxLancaster at the links below and share with your friends.  Don’t miss out on this TEDxLancaster exclusive experience!

TEDxYouth@Lancaster Initial Meeting!

Are you an educator that feels TED talks are beneficial to your students? If so, we have great news! We are excited to announce that there is an initial meeting to explore having Lancaster’s inaugural TEDxYouth@Lancaster event. A Youth event is different than a public event like TEDxLancaster because it is specifically for youth and by youth. If you are an educator and would like to attend this meeting, please let us know.

Thank You to the Ware Center!


TEDxLancaster is held at the prestigious Ware Center in downtown Lancaster.  Without the generosity of Laura Kendall (Director of the Office of Visual and Performing Arts at Millersville University) and the Ware Center, TEDxLancaster could not exist.  The Ware Center is a major underwriter of TEDxLancaster and we are deeply appreciative of the support we receive.  The Ware Center provides a wide variety of events and exhibitions ranging from student and faculty works to touring internationally acclaimed ensembles that the campus community, local and regional residents and visitors can enjoy.  A diversity of art genres as well as diversity within each art genre is offered as well.  To learn more about the Ware Center and to see their schedule of events, click here.
