Maus-ome 8th grade Mentors:

Get ready! We are going to TEDxKids @SMU on Friday, November 30. It’s a day about kids for kids. You will hear adults and kids sharing stories with “ideas worth spreading” in a high-energy, engaging format. You might even get to present a speaker! 🙂

This is the fourth year that I’ve taken students, and I’m especially excited that two of my former students will be a part of TEDxKids this year: Amit Banerjee is a speaker/presenter and Olivia Callan is a student host.

Come get your Permission Form. 

Pack a sack lunch and wear comfortable, appropriate clothing.

About TEDxKids @SMU
The TEDx and TED model of conferences are an ideal platform to present new, engaging ideas to the next generation of leaders, artists, creators, innovators, and  inventors. Short, bursty presentations by astounding thinkers on a broad array of topics ranging from the science of yo-yo’s to space exploration take students out of the classrooms and into a setting where the teachers are the people actually thinking up and executing these big ideas.

Community Service Requirement
As part of our commitment to the students in the Dallas area, we offer this program free of charge for students to attend, but require that students commit to completing a service learning project. At TEDxKids, students will have the opportunity to sign up for one of several volunteer experiences coordinated through TEDxSMU, or to propose a service learning project of their choosing.
