The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics hosted "TEDxNCSSM" on April 13, 2013 as a celebration of human achievement and experience in a wide variety of fields. The Dean of Science, Dr. Amy Sheck, was the recipient of this TEDx license and served as the lead organizer for this conference - which was designed to emulate the celebrated format of "TEDTalks". The organizing committee comprised solely of NCSSM students and played an instrumental role in inviting speakers and selecting audience members. This invitation-only event was capped at 100 attendees and included NCSSM students, Durham high school representatives (students and teachers), NCSSM faculty, and dignitaries from the Triangle area who have contributed significantly to the realm of education. The conference was designed to optimize interaction between speakers and audience members and to potentially spark new ideas from open discourse and facilitated discussion.

Thank you for your support in making this event a success!
