The theme of the 2018 TEDxSpringHillCollege is “Deeper.” Seven featured speakers were invited to look beyond the surface of everyday life into the elements that make up its foundation. Through their presentations, attendees will discover the beauty of these connections and the intricate ways they each shape the view of our world. The event takes a look into the depths of science, technology, language, business and every field of study imaginable to find deeper meaning than what meets the eye.
