JUST ANNOUNCED: TEDxDayton tickets on sale now

The stars of 2018 TEDxDayton have been picked and although organizers are keeping tight lips about who these speakers are, tickets are officially on sale. 

This year’s selection process was tougher than ever, said Sean Creighton, TEDxDAYTON organizer. With over 200 applicants, the most TEDxDayton has ever received, and less than 20 selected — the expectations of this year’s presentations are extremely high.

>>5 surprising restaurants closing this month

TEDxDayton 2018 is set to take place on Oct. 12, 2018 at the Victoria Theatre. One big change this year is the start time, with the event moving to a later start time in the afternoon instead of the morning.

Creighton advises those who want to go to purchase tickets ASAP, as they’ve sold out in as little as a month in previous years. To purchase tickets, visit ticketcenterstage.com

“What’s really fascinating is it tends to sell out before people even know who is speaking. Then they find out, and it’s even that more exciting because it’s like you have a ticket to this concert and you don’t know who you’re seeing,” Creighton said. 

>>Meet the TEDxDAYTON 2017 speakers

There are four ticket levels available:

-Student: $20

-Attendee: $50 

-Partner: $100

-Legacy Partner: $250

This year’s TEDxDAYTON’s theme is“SHIFT.” The shift in time to an afternoon-early evening start will allow for better congregating afterwards. Creighton said organizers also hope the later start time will keep people from out of town, in the Dayton-area for dinner and celebrations following the event.

Since the very first licensed TED talk in 1984, TED talks have been a platform for short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that foster learning on a global scale, as well as in local communities. This is the sixth year for TEDxDayton talks.

You could become an official Guinness World Record holder at Scene75’s huge anniversary bash

The entertainment oasis in Dayton is celebrating six years of fun along I-75 this week. 

>>New health-food store & juice bar coming to Far Hills Avenue

Scene75 has an entire anniversary week of “Totally ‘80s” themed activities and events planned, including an ‘80s late night laser tag, an ‘80s beer pong tourney, volleyball tournament, corn-hole tournament, 1,000 free T-shirts to be given away and more.

>>Opening date set for new Dayton pie shop

This year’s big twist to the annual celebration might sound simple enough — a Guinness World Record attempt at the most stuffed animals caught blindfolded in one minute. However, Guest Service Manager, Jacob Leer, says not so fast. 

“The trickiest part is finding where to hold all of the stuffed animals. You have to finish the minute still holding the stuffed animals, so you’ve got to find places to put them, whether it’s in between your arms, legs, or somewhere else,” Leer said in a press release.

>>2 Guinness world record-breaking cats killed together in house fire

Materials, judges and timekeepers are needed to make the toss a valid Guinness World Record will be supplied by Scene75 on Saturday, July 7, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The challenge is open to anyone, and attempts are at a first-come, first-in-line basis.

COSI chief has big plans for new science festival — and they involve Dayton

If Frederic Bertley’s vision comes true, COSI’s Science Festival will reach Dayton in the future. 

But for now and the foreseeable future, Bertley — the science museum’s President and Chief Executive Officer — said the new festival set to be held in 2019 will be concentrated in and around the Columbus area. 

>> RELATED: COSI announces plans for EPIC new science festival

But Bertley, who came to the  Columbus science museum in in 2017 from Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, has big dreams and big plans for the Buckeye State.

If the new festival is successful in Columbus, Bertley said he would like to see it roll out to Dayton, Cleveland and Cincinnati, then continue to expand around the state. 

“My dream is to literally have a science festival in all 88 counties,” Bertley said. “It is a heavy lift to do something like this statewide.” 

>> This Dayton student just got a college diploma before graduating high school

If the festival expands statewide — something Bertley says he is committed to trying to do  — COSI would partner with universities, museums and other institutions in different communities. 

The inaugural four-day festival patterned after the Philadelphia Science Festival will showcase science around central Ohio.

It is set for May 1-4, 2019 and will conclude with a hands-on, day-long carnival-style celebration on the Scioto Peninsula outside COSI.

About 30,000 people are expected to attend the carnival. It will be open to anyone who wants to attend. 

Bertley said it will not be a grab-a-brochure-and-go kind of event. Each vendor will have a hands-on activities.

Why a science festival?

“This state and this country is growing more and more science illiterate,” Bertley said.

He said he’d like to erase the conception that science is for geeks with lab coats and thick glasses. There should be as much love and support for scientists as there is for celebrities. And the inventor of the cell phone should be as widely known as athletes and stars, Bertley said.   

“Science is for everyone,” he said. “Everyone from the womb to the tomb.”
