TEDYouth stage and audience

TEDYouth is a day-long event for middle and high school students, with live speakers, hands-on activities and great conversations. Scientists, designers, technologists, explorers, artists, performers (and more!) share short talks on what they do best, serving both as a source of knowledge and inspiration for youth around the globe.

TEDYouth 2014: Worlds Imagined

TEDYouth 2014 will take place at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City on Saturday, November 15 from 11am to 6pm.

At TEDYouth — and the TEDxYouthDay 2014 events happening the same day around the globe — young people will gather to explore the theme: "Worlds Imagined." They'll hear mind-shifting stories and big ideas in a broad array of topics that impact the world today. They'll envision new scenarios for our future, and think through how they can contribute to its creation.

Apply to attend

Attendance is free of charge for 400 middle and high school students from the New York City area. The program will be made up of three sessions of speakers, plus a lunch break with engaging activities, demos, and a chance to meet the speakers.

Applications are open until Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 11:59pm ET.
