Tomorrow’s Innovators, Today

Ted yotuh screenWhat do Hamlet’s soliloquy, the chances of finding life on other planets and how quickly you can turn an idea into a working model have in common? They were all topics at this year’s TEDYouthDay event at New York City’s Times Center. There were creative and imaginative presentations to about 350 high school students on everything from how to land a two-ton vehicle on Mars and incorporating touch into electronics to the way the brain perceives time and the psychology of posture. The videos of the event are short and sweet and many of them can be the basis of a classroom lesson; they are available in English, Spanish and Arabic. Can’t wait until next year.
