An electrical engineer, a photographer, a graphic designer, an award-winning iPad App, a team of mechanical engineering students and an award-winning alternative fuels car. This unlikely mix of University of Colorado Denver representatives put their own unique stamp on the recent TEDxMileHigh “Values & Instincts” event.

Local TEDx presentations like the one in Denver are based on the global TED talks phenomenon. TED stands for technology, entertainment and design and carefully selected speakers are invited to “give the talk of their lives.”

The impressive 2013 TEDxMileHigh speakers’ schedule included 16 innovative Coloradans who were given the unique opportunity to inspire action in an audience ready to learn and be challenged. CU Denver was the first at the microphone, represented by Electrical Engineering Assistant Professor Dan Connors, PhD.
