In the spirit of TED - ideas worth spreading - TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, live speakers spark deep thought and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
We are proud to host TEDx at American Heritage School. The theme of our event is BREAKTHROUGH, and a panel of eight American Heritage School high school students, selected through an audition process, will present their own TED Talks. Each student will be sharing his or her personal experiences, profound insight, and brilliant interpretation of "breakthrough" on our TED stage.
