Lessons from our youngest teachers: TEDxYouth@WHRHS - RebooTED
Five impassioned and eloquent local high school students and one teacher took to the stage of the Watchung Hills Regional High School’s performing arts center on the evening of March 31st, 2022, joining the global movement that seeks to bring “ideas worth spreading” (credit: ted.com) to the forefront for general consumption and lifelong learning. This year’s TEDxYOUTH@WHRHS event marks the 6th year in which the high school has hosted this premier, self-organized conference. 2017 WHRHS graduate Vineet Parikh first proposed the inclusion of this programming in the district’s “2015-2020 Strategic Plan” and the event and its preparatory needs were added to the offerings that round out the high school’s student-experience through extracurriculars.
Countdown is on for TEDx Vero Beach at the Emerson Center
Vero Beach had their first TEDx event on October 19th, 2019, at the Emerson Center, a few months before the pandemic started. It was a grand affair and sellout. Unfortunately, the coronavirus put a damper on things and Michael Strezinski, the founder of TEDxVero, along with his board were unable to schedule it again until now.
