Research: TED Talks in Redmond, By Kids, For Kids

My household has been a fan of the TED conferences available online for many years, as is evidenced by our recent post about Sugata Mitra’s latest educational development, and a post some time ago I made about Paul Stamets the way mushrooms will save the world. (The latter is more academic and stems from a project in a climate change/linguistics course I was taking.)

So, it came as wonderful news this morning when I saw that a 12 year old has organized a TED conference in Redmond, WA, very close to where I live, this Saturday, the 18th!  It is being held for attendees under 18 years of age in the upper elementary through high school grades.  Adults who bring children to attend can watch the event in a separate theatre.  There is no doubt that this is for children by children.
