From the team that brought you the incredibly popular FrontLineCon, we’ve crafted a day that introduces business, marketing and even computer science high school students to the science that powers businesses from Google to Spotify. Learn coding basics, how to prototype a new product, what user experience design involves, and more – all from the people who make it happen.

New York City, New York: February 20, 2018

Washington DC: February 27, 2018

We're incredibly excited to announce that we'll be joined by players in the startup world – all of whom will provide a crash course in everything from code to data science. It'll be an unforgettable day out in your city. There's never been anything like this – for schools or the public – so don't miss out!

Schools, our full leaflet for 2018 is coming soon, so stay tuned.

About Edluminary

We’re a homegrown innovation lab looking to improve learning experiences in the classroom and beyond. From student conferences and professional development events to educational apps, we’re using our unique form of alchemy to formulate the most compelling ways for students to engage with science, math and engineering. Follow our journey.

Our first science conference, FrontLineCon, was first held in London, England in 2016 before an audience of 400 people at the prestigious Royal Institution. We brought together distinguished faculty from the United Kingdom and abroad for the general public and schools. The event was a spectacular success – and we were asked to bring the concept to the USA in 2017. Our second conference in New York, run in April 2017 for an audience of 700 students and teachers, was sold-out.

We're now working to bring a new conference – focusing on the science behind startups – to your city.
