TEDxStHelier 2015 (Sponsored by DJ)
Digital Jersey is delighted to be sponsoring TEDxStHelier for the second year running. Alongside, 9 remarkable speakers on 6 June, TEDxStHelier will also be involved in the Jersey Junior Hackathon and the BCS Tech Fair and Ideas Lab for Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED)
An opportunity for students to get involved in TED Talks and a TEDx Event in Jersey
TEDxStHelier is going to be about technology, entertainment and design, as all TED Talks are, but our focus will be on knowledge and wisdom and building a better future. The aim is to host TEDxStHelier at Hautlieu School and offer all students from any school (or any age) to help shape the event.
TEDx Tech Fair and Ideas Lab
As well as the TEDx talks we’d like to also run a schools activity / tech-fair to give students the opportunity to ask questions of our speakers and perhaps participate in some of the “idea labs” and community discussions.
Some of the tech-fair ideas include….
- Oculus of course
- 3D printing
- 3D mapping/cool visuals
- Ultra high def TVs with games to play
We also hope to get the TEDxStHelier speakers to set challenges for the students to think about before TEDxStHelier.
