20 The Penny Conference In the 18th century … coffee houses were known as Penny Universities. For a mere penny, people entered a communal space overflowing with ideas, literature, intellectual conversations and inspired debates. Here, men and women came to improve their minds, challenge their mindsets, and build a roadmap for change.

21 Penny Conference Agenda Together, well answer one simple question… if we had to re-invent education from the ground-up for the 21st century, what would it look like and how can we create that future together? Conversations and debates are highly encouraged. Action is required. Join us to create a roadmap that will change the way our kids kids kids will learn.
