TEDxKids @SMU is a high-energy, 1/2 day TED-style conference designed just for middle school students. It’s rapid-fire presentations, incredible tech demos, breaks you can immerse yourself in. It’s both student and adult presenters sharing equally engaging stories. It’s combining learning with giving through our TEDxKids @SMU service projects. It’s out of the box and DIY. And, it’s also just a lot of fun.
