TED-Ed Club


Welcome to the MapleShine TEDEd Club! This is a non-profit program, totally free to our community children who love public speaking!

MapleShine is approved to host TEDEd club for our students with the curriculum designed by TEDEd team. In our club, we work all together to spark and celebrate the ideas of our students, engage in a series of explorations designed to help our students present an amazing TED style talk on an idea that inspires them.

Along the way, our student will develop skills in:

  • Identifying the elements of a great idea

  • Researching, developing and presenting an idea

  • Telling a compelling story

  • Giving and receiving feedback effectively

We hope by the end of this club course, we will have our student participants film a TEDEd student talk, which may be nominated by MapleShine to TEDEd and featured on TEDEd platforms, or even possibly on the TED stage!
