TMI: A #chewonthis for the cyber savvy generation

June 29, 2013
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

Kids between the ages of 13-17 joined us for a special “Chew on This” event for the cyber savvy generation. In small groups, teens had dinner and conversation – the face-to-face kind – about the pros and cons about texting, tweeting and other technology. The chat was informal, parents-free and led by a fellow teen.

Chew On This: Crossroads 1987

Aug. 22, 2012

A series of dinner conversations at 10 venues around Indianapolis to discuss the success, failures and lasting impact of the Games on its 25th anniversary. In the early 1980s, Indianapolis was at a crossroads. Civic leaders boldly developed a vision that set the city on its path to becoming the Amateur Sports Capitol of the World and turned its citizens into “professional” volunteers. Much like Super Bowl XLVI, the 1987 Pan Am Games put Indianapolis on the map.
