April 14, 2011

2011 is the year of 50th anniversary of the first human space flight. So because of that we started TEDxVorobyovy-Gory events from the theme SPACE and look at space from different focuses and invited different experts to make speeches. After the successful event for adult we decide to make event for children and youth attendees because it’s very important to inspire youth’s minds to discover new, make experiments, develop critical thinking and express themselves.

There were two main ideas, which were taken for developing context of the conference:
1. The development of space technologies were provoked and stimulated by the development of IT technologies.
2. In spite of long period of searching for extraterrestrial intelligence and planets convenient for human life, the Earth is still the unique planet appropriate for life.

As well for us were important to present the humanitarian position of space comprehension – there were speeches about personal microcosms by Alexander Dobroer, teem-working by Anna Lebedeva, career development by Denis Kaminsky, cosmic thinking by Victoria Kravchenko, critical thinking and ability to verify mass media information (refutation of horror about doomsday in December 2012) by Dmitry Vibe.

Our youth speakers really had fun of their presentation and attendees as well.
