TEDxYouth@ACS is the CAS project of Dina Shriem and Dennis Hilgendorf (Class of 2014). CAS stands for Creativity, Action and Service; it is a core component of the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. The idea for a TED-like day of talks came up during the second semester of Grade 11, when clips from TEDTalks videos were screened and discussed in classes such as English Higher Level and Theory of Knowledge.
