Join us for this free event which includes food and refreshments, networking, and brief presentations by educators and business leaders speaking about innovation and technology. Technology educators, teachers, and business professionals from around Ohio are invited to attend and share their passion for education, technology, and innovation.

The evening is designed around multiple five-minute presentations with networking time before, during and after the event.  This is not your typical conference! It is a fast-paced evening, kept casual with time to network with other innovative educators and community members.



The Innovation Mixer will be held at The Boat House Restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. Refreshments and light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

From past years attendees...

attendees"I liked so many things about this mixer. I think most of all, I liked the chance to network with like-minded professionals, both in schools and those who work with schools. Our presenters from Westerville got a lot of good feedback and will be collaborating with some folks for research, etc."

"I thought the event was very well organized. Presentations were short and varied and allowed time to follow up with those presenters who you were most interested in hearing more from and/or connecting with at a later date and time. Felt a little like speed dating. Very effective format. Worth the drive from Cleveland!"

"Variety of presentations, that they were short- to the point.  Then we could talk to those we were interested in during the breaks to get more information and connect.  I am looking forward to the next one."
