Thank you for all you do and we are looking forward to seeing you,

Meet our Keynote Speakers
We have three General Sessions and are currently soliciting questions for our speakers. 

Youth Speakeasy - We have 3 high school students that will be speaking during the opening session. We will not be doing a Q&A with the audience, however, we are asking for people to submit questions for the students, as they will be 
participating in a TEEN TALK workshop session immediately following the general session.  

Barbara Boxer & Jesse Williams will both participate in an audience Q&A. As we are not offering real-time questions at 
the conference, be sure to submit questions ahead of time! Deadline: April 1st, 2017.

Here is the link to submit questions  

Please share with your networks - even if people are not attending, we encourage them to submit questions! Thank you!


Breakout EDU is an immersive games platform for learners of all ages. In Breakout EDU games, players work collaboratively to solve a series of critical thinking puzzles in order to open a locked box. Each Breakout EDU starter kit can be used to play hundreds of games.
