What is TIMtalks?

TIMtalks is “Powerful ideas by passionate students.” It’s “stories of initiative, success, and lessons learned from failure.” It’s the opportunity for students who do to talk about what they do, why they do it, and what they’ve learned by doing and reflecting. It’s a way of capturing the MIT student experience, fostering community, building confidence, and inspiring others to reflect and act. Like TEDtalks, these are “ideas worth spreading” so they’re delivered in front of a live audience and then shared on-line – but TIMtalks are uniquely MIT.
