Ted Talks for Kids!

I love Ted Talks and especially those by kids. Therefore, when I came across Ted's blog with "Impressive Kid Ted Talks," I immediately had to share with you!

One of my favorite talks are listed embedded below. Those of my students that follow my blog, be INSPIRED for you can have your own Ted Talk one day soon!

Thomas Suarez: A 12-year-old app developer Perhaps you have used Thomas Suarez’s most famous iPhone app, the whack-a-mole game “Bustin Jeiber”? While most kids his age were playing online games, Suarez was learning how to make them. At TEDxManhattanBeach, he shares how he is sharing his knowledge and teaching other kids to develop apps too.

Adora Svitak: What adults can learn from kids Childish thinking is worthy of real attention, says 12-year-old short story scribe and blogger Adora Svitak at TED2010. Instead of looking just to teach kids, Svitak urges grown-ups to try to learn from them too.

Sirena Huang: An 11-year-old’s magical violin Sirena Huang began violin lessons at age 4, and made her professional debut at age 9. In this talk from TED2006, Huang shows great maturity and charm — taking the time to praise the design of the violin.
