By Jutka Colson - Mar 26th, 2015

With a table full of toys and some inspirational movies of children who quickly learn scientific concepts through play, Jan de Lange demonstrates the power of letting kids use their innate curiosity and creativity.

By Mira Gleisberg - Mar 9th, 2015

“What can I do today to expand my idea tomorrow?” This was the theme of the day on March the 6th with four inspiring workshops, passionate speakers, delicious food and a hell of a lot of ideas. All in all, bootcamp number two went down a treat.

Preparing the Speakers Video

By Mira Gleisberg - Mar 9th, 2015

Speaking for the TEDxAmsterdamED event 2015 is not just about showing up on the day itself and presenting your idea. It is so much more, just as TEDxAmsterdamED is so much more than just an event about education. It is an adventure… that starts with having an idea, an idea worth spreading, sending this idea in and then being invited to the speaker’s pitch. There you present yourself and your idea, being coached and supported by an inspiring team of people who know that your idea needs to be heard. Curious about what preparations are needed before the speakers are ready to present their idea for the TEDxAmsterdamED event on 26th of March? Check out this wonderful video!
