For the past two years, students from Florence 1 Schools have given talks at TEDxEvansStreet event in Florence. In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The Florence, S.C. event is called TEDxEvansStreet, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxEvansStreet, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. TEDxEvansStreet is an independent TEDx event operated under a license issued by TED and is open to the public. We are very proud of these students, their accomplishments and their willingness to share their experiences. Please enjoy their presentations below.
