Skip Viragh Center @ Chaminade High School

An Innovative Playground of Possibilities

TEDxGatewayArch's 2016 event was an innovative playground of possibilities. Attendees came to BOUNCE and ended up somewhere completely new when they left. Some took things in a new direction. Some were driven to reach new heights. Some even discovered they had even more energy than ever before - to learn, to connect, to grow. They bounced.

  • 15 Live TEDx Speakers & Entertainers
  • Food & drink from St. Louis favorites served all day
  • Exhibitors from local tech, design, and community-building organizations. Come experience cutting edge virtual & augmented reality experience!
  • Networking with the most diverse audience in St. Louis, "Ideas worth spreading"
