At the IDEA SUMMIT students are taking leaps of faith and attacking problems from different angles. With eyes and minds open to every possibility, they are breaking out of the usual box of ideas and turning brainstorms from familiar to fantastic.

Don’t miss an opportunity to see youthful innovation, creativity, and tough-minded optimism at work.
