The Flame Challenge Worldwide Assembly LIVE

Monday, April 24, 2017 — Noon to 1:00pm EDT

The Flame Challenge Worldwide Assembly is a live-streamed web conference in which students around the world join Alan Alda to discuss the the six finalist entries to The Flame Challenge (written and video). Our student judges of The Flame Challenge take this event very seriously and they can be charmingly unpredictable! We are thrilled to partner with IBM this year to broadcast live from the THINKLab at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.
