It is a community of thinkers and doers, ideators and creators, activists and enthusiasts. TEDxMileHigh showcases innovative Coloradans, no matter the sector, who each give the ‘talk of their life’ around the power of ideas.  This diverse group of thought leaders and innovators educate, inspire, and stimulate change with the ultimate goal being deep discussion and action across our communities.” We are honored that Dan will be representing the college and the university at such an inspiring event.

Mechanical engineering students also will be in the Exhibits Lounge with their award-winning hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the H2 Eco-Challenger.
