TedX Columbus - New This Year
Have your students be a part of the first ever CCS TEDxColumbus event! GRADES 3-6
TEDxColumbus is a showcase for students to present their unique ideas/passions in short (less than 4 minutes) speeches. During the TEDx talks students will incorporate their own research and data to prove how their topic is relevant to a global audience. This year’s theme is “My Ideas are Significant!” Even if one student would like to participate from your school, that is fine! Or, you can have a group, class or club. Consider a parent volunteer who might want to help prepare the students. Once you are registered, the GT Division will provide you with planning updates and information to prepare for the event.
The event will be held at the Columbus Museum of Art May 19, 2016!
