TEDxkids@Akure will be held in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria, on the 17th of November, 2012. The theme of our TEDx event is ‘’Impressions”. Our audience will consist of kids from age five (5) to age twelve (12).
The aim of all education is to teach the student how to bring out the best that is in him, to develop his maximum potential and TEDxkids@Akure program was developed for this purpose. Its objective is to serve as a blueprint or guide which young people in attendance can follow to get from where they are now to wherever they want to go in life. TEDxkids@Akure, in its first year is a Six (6) hour event for young people and is usually held in November around the Universal Children’s Day. We are opening attendance, free of charge, to kids within the specified age range within the Akure metropolis to be inspired and challenged. Our speakers will inspire creativity, share mind-shifting stories, and engage their physical and virtual audience in ways that every student deserves.
TEDxkids@Akure is centered on this year’s global theme – “Dream Big… Then Do It”. The inspiration for our theme was gotten from the tabula rasa principle that proposes that humans mind at birth and the early stages of growth is plain and without form and that whatever is first impressed on such a mind stays on for a very long time if not forever. This first impression is also believed to have an effect on the other things that individual does either directly or indirectly – innate nature. Little wonder it is said that first impression lasts longer.
