Webster at TedxVienna

Webster Scholars students, staff and faculty enjoyed the TedxVienna at the Volkstheather in Vienna Nov. 1.

On Nov. 1, Webster Scholars at Webster Vienna joined Scholars Program coordinator Dorothy Kopel, Webster Scholars seminar professor Seth Wiener, and scholarship coordinator Katherine Price Beuchert for TedxVienna at the Volkstheather in the 7th district.

The Webster Scholars group was among the 1000 participants at the day-long event, which hosted 20 international and local speakers under the title, “Brave New Space.” Speakers tackled diverse topics from sociology and the economics of love, digital biology, leadership to space, entrepreneurship, social activism and self quantification.

Huntsville, Alabama, missile engineer Destin Sandlin‘s message particularly resonated with Webster Scholars students, and sums up what the students in the Scholars program aspire to: “In a world of talkers, be a thinker and doer.”
