Middle School Student Organizes TEDxYouth Event
Middle and high school students from across Frisco ISD will share their ideas and visions for the future during a TEDxYouth event this Saturday, March 24 at Nelson Middle School.
Eighth grader Taylor Karp applied to host the event. With the support of her school and FISD, she accepted applications and selected students and some adults to speak.
“I wanted to make a change,” she said. “I thought this would be a way to help make the community a better place. I hope the people who come see the world in a different way and put what they hear into action in their own lives.”
A limited number of tickets remain. Free STEM activities will also be available for the duration of the event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. LEARN MORE
