TEDxYouth@SanDiego to inspire San Diego’s ‘Architects of the Future’ on Nov. 18 at CCA

TEDxYouth@SanDiego will host nearly 400 students from high schools throughout San Diego County on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy to experience the power of sharing ideas and the importance of becoming the “Architects of the Future.” Students will engage with big thinkers and doers of all ages and backgrounds pushing the boundaries of their endeavors spanning science, art, technology, environment, humanity and beyond.

“Our student organizers set out to create an event that showcases true architects of the future of all disciplines, and calls to the architects of our future: our youth,” said Sonia Rhodes, executive producer for TEDxYouth@SanDiego. “It’s important to light a spark of possibility for our youth, so that through the power of ideas and a belief that anything is possible, young people of San Diego and the world can create the future we’re hoping for.”

Following the theme of “Architects of the Future,” students will hear from more than 25 speakers and performers in four “stories” — sessions that build from the foundation to framing, construction and close with interior. In between each session, the groups will rotate between 15 interactive exhibits known as Interactive Experience Salons in technology (CONNECT), health and environment (PROTECT) and personal reflection (REFLECT) zones. The full speaker lineup is available at www.tedxyouthsandiego.com and a live video stream will be accessible to the public starting at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 18. Student organizers will also be active on social media day-of on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at tedxyouthsandiego.
