I’m excited to announce that I’ll be presenting More Than A Code Monkey at this year’s TEDxYouth@Guelph event. The event will take place Wednesday, May 30th starting at 9:30am.
During this talk, I’ll present several stories that demonstrate that computer science is more than just coding; that it can and should be used to improve life. Specifically, I’ll discuss how students are making huge impacts in the areas of food insecurity, food waste, energy conservation, climate change, and the digital divide using computer science.
For those not familiar with TEDx events (although, I’m sure everyone is familiar with TEDx):
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@Guelph, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@Guelphevent, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Join us for a day full of brilliant speakers, thought-provoking videos and lots of conversation. Our hope is to provide a space that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform our participants!

I hope to see you there.
