What participants are saying about IDEA:TE:
"IDEA:TE is definitely a conference that I would encourage anyone to come to... This is the way of the future. We're preparing 21st Century learners, and kids learn different today than they did in the past. 3D printing, laser cutting, computers, and sewing -- all these things are the things kids need to be successful in the future."
