Idea Summit

What is the Idea Summit?

The Idea Summit is The Ingenuity Project’s principal fundraising event. The event features a series of TED-style talks by Ingenuity students and alumni designed to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder— and promote conversations that matter.

Over 250 guests attended our first even in 2015 and over 350 guests in 2016. Guests were astounded by the students’ abilities, presence and self-knowledge. The spontaneous warm standing ovations showed a public appetite for gifted student observations about their studies and personal aspirations.

With Baltimore’s present and future now widely debated, this event will remind you of the wealth of talent in our midst. These spirited Baltimore City Public School students are tomorrow’s leaders.
