This is one of the coolest events I have ever been to. Where else can you hear an 11 year-old talk about the history of Tesla or listen to poems by Sand Crab Sam while also taking a peek inside the teenage mind with an eloquent local teenager? Enlighten Us – But Make It Quick! is the catchphrase for Ignite Fort Collins. Similar to independent TEDx talks, Ignite is a night of presentations on a variety of topics…with a twist. Each presentation has 20 slides that automatically advance after 15 seconds. It is a worldwide movement and loads of fun for the whole family! Educational, insightful and entertaining, Ignite will bring laughter and inspiration to those that attend. Ignite events have been taking place all over town for years, most recently making its home in the Lincoln Center. To learn more about the 15th Ignite FC happening on September 13, visit www.ignitefortcollins.com and “Like” them on Facebook. “Spark submissions” for the next Ignite close August 7.
