Allendale Columbia students present their sixth-annual TEDx event on Saturday, February 3rd, organized by youth for youth. The independently organized event, licensed by TED, is built around the theme of CTRL + ALT + DEL, leading to the question of “How and what do you reset, or reboot?”
This year’s event has nine speakers scheduled to take the stage, including:
- Sam Thomson, Student, Boston University, and CEO, Bluum
- 17 School 17 Student Council
- Alan Raskin, Student, Calkins Road Middle School
- Anderson Allen, Assistant Educational Coordinator, Boys and Girls Club of Rochester
- Natalie Northrup, Student, Honeoye Falls-Lima High School
- Andrew Brady, President & Chief Evolutionary Officer, The XLR8 Team, Inc. and Conscious Capitalism ROC
- Emily Atieh, Senior, Allendale Columbia School
- Brian Roets, Practice Lead: Infrastructure and End-User Computing, SMP Corp
- Carmen Gumina, Superintendent, Webster School District
Organized by the TEDxAllendaleColumbiaSchool class and club, the event aims to create dialogue, as well as give people a forum to share their passions, ideas and experiences. This will be one of only three TEDx events scheduled in Rochester this year.
The class and club are advised by Amy Oliveri, Director of the AC Center for Entrepreneurship, and Tony Tepedino, AC Hybrid Learning Coordinator and Entrepreneurship teacher.
