TEDxYouth@TheSchool is the The School at Columbia University’s newest, biggest, and most exciting project! We are an independently organized TEDxYouth event that holds a 1-day conference every fall for middle school students from The School at Columbia University. Via live speakers, performances, and TEDTalks, TEDxYouth@TheSchool will electrify students with new ideas and provide a forum for them to connect and to exchange ideas of their own. Students will have the opportunity to interact during interval periods that feature live-streaming videos from other TEDxYouth events from around the globe, social media networking stations, and informal discussions with like minded youth from the New York City area. The theme for TEDxYouthDay 2012 is “Dream Big…Then Do It!” chosen by the TEDx community. Individual TEDxYouthDay events will feature their own unique themes, but ”Dream Big…Then Do It!” has the potential to bring to light creative ways to unite the 2012 TEDxYouthDay events around the world.
