If you are over the age of 18, feel free to tune out now — this message is for curious minds who are currently in the 9th through 12th grades. Applications are now open for TEDYouth 2012, a day-long event held in New York City, where more than 20 scientists, designers, technologists, explorers, artists and performers will share short lessons on what they do best. They’ll dazzle us with mind-shifting stories, inspire us with creativity and make us want to dive even deeper into a broad array of topics.
At last year’s event, YouTube’s trend manager Kevin Allocca shared the four reasons videos go viral. Performance artist Carvens Lissaint asked the audience to put the financial aid in the bag. And Adam Savage of the show Mythbusters shared the three scientific stories that keep him inspired.
