On that Saturday, the stage of the Moore Theatre will become an avenue for sharing inspiration, innovation and motivation, and The Hop will turn into and exhibition of what Dartmouth has to offer.

Come for one talk or stay for all of them, discuss your impressions with your friends or the speakers themselves in the lounge at the Top of the Hop over some nice food, a courtesy of TEDxDartmouth.
