TEDx Education City
tedxThis year’s theme for TEDx is ‘Branch Out’. When we think about our theme, we think about a tree. A tree’s trunk represents its foundation and strength, much like our university degree represents the “core basis” of our knowledge. However, the trunk also develops into different branches. These branches are our projects, interests, and explorations. Join the TEDx team and speakers as we explore the world of experts to find out what their trunks are made of and how they’ve branched out.
