The TED Conference continues to expand its influence, this time with kids. As part of its TEDx Series, the organizers of last week’s TEDxSMU Conference have organized the very first TED Conference for kids. TEDxKids provides junior high-school students from public, private, and charter schools with the opportunity to engage in an experience similar to TEDxSMU.

John Duvenci, an SMU undergraduate civil engineering major and TEDxSMU organizer, explains the inspiration for the event:

“It’s important to get kids interested at an early age and one of the hopes is that TEDxKids will be a meaningful experience for both us and other kids.”

This is a tremendous idea by the group organizing TEDxSMU and certainly the kind of inspired thinking that TED was hoping for when it franchised its conference model.
