TEDxOOBSchool 2019 is the 4th of its kind, the school is privileged to host. It was held on 2 February 2019 in the Sheikh Zayed Multipurpose Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.
The TEDx Program is designed to get TED-like experiences locally in communities, organizations and individuals. They provide opportunities to spark conversation on the ideas talked over and establish connection among communities. They are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
TEDxOOBSchool 2019 showcased 13 talks on 13 ideas on the theme Creating Future.exe. TEDxOOBSchool believes in inviting ideas from neighbouring schools as well. There were 3 formal rehearsals. In the last one Mr. Ronald Oliveira provided the speakers with a grooming session.
5 speakers from the invited schools and 8 from ours spoke on their ideas on the day. In addition to listening to engaging talks the 100-member audience savoured the warmth of camaraderie. The speakers were presented with a souvenir and a certificate at the closing ceremony.
