ICS Students in TED-Talk

Thursday, May 19, 2016

ICS students will present their TED-Talk to the community. The TED-Ed Club in ICS has been running since January. These clubs are officially endorsed and licensed by TED in NYC. The goal of this club is for students to try out a TED talk, record it and then send it to the TED offices in NYC. Some kids who do this actually get selected to go to NYC to do their talk.

The students will do their talk on some outstanding topics ranging from increasing student voice, to celebrating learning differences, to providing more struggles for kids today. Moreover, taking responsibility for the world's poor, the benefit of gaining perspective, the benefits of sharing ideas and onward to more personal topics, like being a 3rd culture kid and challenging narrow definitions of beauty will be presented.

Among others, research, writing, speaking, courage and perseverance are traits to be witnessed in the students’ TED-Ed Talks.
