The TEDxYouth@MSC is an opportunity for 5 to 8th grade students in NYC to talk about their science research and how it is relevant to their everyday life in terms of achieving a more sustainable urban environment.

The event hosts about 15 students with a 3 to 6 minutes presentation each, and 2 adults "guests speakers" with longer presentations that bring students conversations to a deeper level.

The event is covered by a Youth Press Team composed by 6-8th grade students that feed the website/blog, interview the speakers, tweet, and take pictures at the event..

The TEDxYouth@MSC will be streaming live!
