TED-Ed Weekend is just like the official TED conference, except for one thing: it’s dedicated to student voice.
At the June 2017 TED-Ed Weekend, thousands of people tuned in via Facebook Live to watch students take the mic at TED Headquarters in New York City. On stage, students shared ideas about everything from ADHD and the human mind, to solar energy and ocean clean-up. Off stage, students participated in hands-on workshops about creativity, VR, and animation.
