Grand Mesa Observatory was invited to exhibit at the 2nd. annual TEDx Grand Junction. This year's theme was "We Are Creators" and the day-long event featured a series of talks plus a display area in which GMO had a booth.
"In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience". "The difference between TED and TEDx events are that the former takes more of a global approach while the latter typically focuses on a local community that concentrates on local voices."
During breaks from the main speakers of the day, attendees of the event visited the booths in the display area. The Grand Mesa Observatory booth featured a rotating slide show about the observatory and its nonprofit mission, astrophotos taken at GMO, a telescope demonstration, a banner about our services, and both the director and assistant director who were there all day speaking with guests.
As one of the Western Slope's newest technological entities we were honored and proud to share our creative offerings with the attendees of this important TEDx event.
