Laney FabLab builds props for TEDx Oakland

TEDx Event – Oakland October 22, 2017

In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program helps communities, organizations and individuals produce TED-style events at the local level.  TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis, under a free license from TED.

In October 2017, the first TEDxOakland event was held in one of the most diverse racially balanced cities in America, bringing together bold speak­ers with inno­v­a­tive, inspir­ational and chal­leng­ing ideas worth sharing.  As one of the sponsors, Laney College FabLab was instrumental in designing and building the stage set, outdoor signage, and the awards for each presenter.
