Theme: Twists & Turns
Explore With Us...
The Rubik’s Cube – a puzzle that boggles, bewilders, and beguiles. For many of us, it’s a pathway uncharted, as its twists and turns yield seemingly unpredictable results; sometimes, however, the pieces perfectly lock together, each side its own unique color.
The process of solving (or not) a puzzle, from start to finish, evokes a labyrinth of choices, a journey with many branches; so it is the choices we make and their intended and unintended consequences that form the center of TEDxSaintAndrewsSchool. We encourage speakers to explore a twisting, turning journey that perhaps didn't solve a puzzle, but did create a colorful mosaic. What were the unintended consequences of exploring a powerful idea? The surprises on a road less traveled? The beautiful tapestry that began with a single thread? TEDxSaintAndrewsSchool will provide the stage for the speakers to share their ideas through their left turns, cul de sacs, and surprising discoveries.
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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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.
