Burleson ISD IGNITE Speaker Symposium

The BISD Ignite Speaker Series will take place on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the STEAM Middle School located at 900 SW Hillside Dr. in Burleson.

The theme of the speaker series is “IGNITE your passion and share!” This theme is purposefully broad and encompasses many subjects to allow students to speak on local, national or international topics, that may include social issues, education, technology, science, medicine, or any other subject a student is passionate about.

BISD IGNITE is implemented using the Discovery Education “IGNITE” format, whereby students speak for 5 minutes, from memory, about a topic of interest to them, a problem they want to solve, or a solution to a problem that no one has solved. Their speech is accompanied by 20 slides that advance automatically.

BISD students have thought-provoking ideas and BISD IGNITE gives students a voice to share ideas that impact our lives and community, with the opportunity to create change and encourage solutions.  The goal is to encourage students to engage in innovative thinking and inspire transformation.
