Play, Learn, Build and Share
November 19, 2011
TEDYouth, our first-ever TED event for young people, was held on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the TimesCenter in Manhattan. TEDYouth coincided with more than 100 self-organized TEDxYouthDay events happening worldwide over a 48-hour period. The theme for the day was "Play, Learn, Build and Share." Attendance was open, free of charge, to 300 students in the 6-12th grades within the New York area. Each of the 20 passionate speakers inspired creativity, shared mind-shifting stories, and engaged their physical and virtual audience in the way that every student deserves.
