TEDxKIDS@SMU was the first TEDx event designed specifically for students. We hosted 331 students from private, public, Montessori, parochial and charter schools, as well as a number of home-schooled students. The half-day conference featured amazing TEDTalks and live TEDx presentations from TED favorites like Dave Gallo and Art Benjamin.
