Freebee Friday: TED for Kids
We’ve all heard of the TED conferences where the tech world’s movers and shakers meet and try to outdo each other with intense intellectual presentations about their areas of interest. How about one for students? That’s exactly what TEDYouth is all about. On November 17, nearly two dozen scientists and future-thinkers will converge on New York City’s Times Center with planned presentations by Bobak Ferdowsi (the Mars Curiosity rover’s Flight Director), science writer Carl Zimmer and theoretical physicist Clifford Johnson. There will also be dozens of TEDYouthDay events throughout the world.
