TEDx Brown County Schools
We believe that the TEDx mission is closely aligned with the Brown County Schools’ Profile of a Graduate and truly pushes for widespread knowledge and innovation.
Representing Technology, Entertainment and Design, the mission of TED is to simply SPREAD IDEAS. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world. There are several TED and TEDx events around the globe bringing together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives. At TED.com, they make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TED talks and live presenters spark deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
BCS is now licensed to host an independently organized TEDx event. This will be a yearly event organized by a dedicated group of BCS school students and staff members along with individuals from our incredible community in Brown County. The State of Indiana has identified communication and collaboration as one of the top 5 characteristics that all students should leave K-12 with and the most impactful way to share who you are and what you care about. It can teach you how to communicate with others effectively, articulate your ideas clearly, and speak with confidence.
