What is TED?

TED is a global program of conferences, organized by the nonprofit Sapling Foundation, centered on the concept of "Ideas Worth Spreading". TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our world. The TED conference format showcases important ideas from these and many other disciplines. At a TED format event, attendees and speakers from vastly different fields can connect and draw inspiration from an unlikely convergence of ideas. This convergence and the conversations it ignites can inspire action and change lives. This is the magic of TED.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTheWeissSchool, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTheWeissSchool event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Event

Having a "growth-mindset" philosophy reminds us that to accomplish our goals, we must first be able to dream them into action, then persevere until we achieve. We see these actions in STEAM- related pursuits (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) every day, but we also see them in the lives of those who view life with a joie d'vivre and the grit to never give up. This TEDx event will inspire others to define, develop, and appreciate grit and determination.
