4. TEDx Manhattan Beach.
If we don’t have it already, the team at TEDx Manhattan Beach will find it. For the last five years, local leaders scout to find the most inspirational speakers, covering topics as far and wide as behavioral game theory to math education to public health. “We are all about finding leading-edge concepts that may translate into leading-edge education options here in Manhattan Beach”, shares MBEF Board Member Kate Bergin, who has curated the event the last few years. “We have to know what’s out there before we can incorporate it here.” The one-day conference each Fall, hosted at MBMS and partly sponsored by MBEF, focuses on education, science, and technology and has pushed both our community’s knowledge and conscience on what could be here in Manhattan Beach schools. Missed it? No worries. You can always watch the videos here.
