HISD’s Student Congress, in partnership with Rice University, will be conducting a TEDxHISD conference on April 9, 2016, and leaders of that organization are still seeking both volunteers and speakers.
TEDx are independently organized events designed to bring people together to share great ideas. The TEDxHISD event will take place from noon until 6 p.m. in the Anderson Bio Lab Lecture Hall 131 at Rice University (6100 Main Street, 77005). It is open to all HISD high-school students.
NOTE: The deadline for speaker applications was originally Feb. 15, but Student Congress Chief of Staff Kate Ham (HSPVA, Class of 2016) is willing to consider making exceptions for strong late-comers.
