ABOUT THE EVENT /
Have you heard of TED talks? What about TEDx talks? One of the main differences between TED and TEDx is the "x", which signifies that the event is an independently organized TED event organized by members of the local community (in this case, Briar Woods)! TEDxYouth@BriarWoodsHS, an event officially licensed by TED, will feature 8 speakers delivering 8 new TEDx talks to a live audience that all tie into our theme of "Making Connections".
What does "Making Connections" mean? Anything that makes a connection is part of our theme, such as a quarterback connecting a handoff in football, an author connecting with readers through a novel, or even a plug connecting to a wall socket!
Want to attend? The event is completely free! TEDxYouth@BriarWoodsHS will be held 100% virtually, simply go to ten minutes before event day. We'll see you then!
Can't make the event? We'll post a recording of the event here on the website after it's over.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@BriarWoodsHS, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@BriarWoodsHS event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
