The popular Ignite series moves to Town Hall with its simple premise: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” Since 2006, Ignite has presented hundreds of talks around the world, sparking thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, Boulder, Baltimore, NYC, and more. Presenters are asked: If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? What if you got only 20 slides, and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Touching briefly on a variety of topics, from the DIY community to parent-educator relationships, and presented by anyone and everyone, Ignite events are fast-paced, sometimes-unpredictable, and always-thought-provoking. A Science Challenge networking event open to all precedes the talks, starting at approximately 7 p.m. Previous challenges have included crossword puzzles, paper towers, bridge-building with Popsicle sticks and mousetrap-powered cars. Presented by Ignite Seattle and Town Hall.
