When 13 year-old Logan LaPlante grows up, he wants to be happy and healthy. He discusses how hacking his education is helping him achieve this goal. Enjoy his Ted Talk from TEDxUniversityofNevada.
Logan LaPlante is taking a different path in his education. He combines the “hacker mindset” with a network of do-it-yourself friends, family, and community organizations to optimize for health, happiness, and creativity. He calls it “hackschooling”.
A competitive freeskier from Lake Tahoe, Logan and his brother Cody enjoy skiing, mountain biking, skating, backpacking, and camping. Where possible Logan looks to learn more about design, writing, film, and photography.
Where can I “hackschool”?
Anywhere, anytime. It’s a mindset. Make the world better. Less talk, more walk. Volunteering at a nonprofit is a great start.
