Hacking Edu: From Tower to Town Square "The Big Idea" Happy Hour featuring Erika Wagner of X Prize, presented by Four Peaks and powered by MCDM and The Seattle Chamber

The Seattle Chamber in collaboration with MCDM is excited to conclude the exciting month of public conversation with the Hacking Edu "Big Idea" Happy Hour at Jet City Improv in the University District.

Our featured speaker at this closing event will be Erika Wagner, executive director of X Prize Foundation which incentivizes inventors to solve grand challenges such as space flight, medical diagnostics and oil spill cleanup.

Erika Wagner will be joined by photographer Chase Jarvis. Wagner and Jarvis are members of the Hacking Edu Advisory Roundtable which, as a body, will consider the best "hacks" that our student team have created over the past few weeks. They will select the idea that has the most merit, to be implemented over the following 12 months. It's TED meets American Idol!

This April Four Peaks, powered by the MCDM, calls on us all to boldly re-imagine higher education, moving away from an industrialized, hierarchical model to a more nimble, collaborative one. How do we need to learn? What are we willing to pay for? What are the essential skills of a 21st century workforce? What are emerging trends are already disrupting the traditional model of lecture-based, degree programs?

Join us for food, drink, and exciting big ideas. Tickets are $10 and give you full access to the bar and appetizers.
