TEDxLakeTravisHigh 2017 - "On being human"
Human beings. We are an enigma to each other. We are an enigma to ourselves. What does it mean to be human? We all exist on the continuum between bliss and anguish on any given day. Our experiences no doubt define us and our world, creating unique and varied stories. For all of our diversity, individually and culturally, thematic threads emerge that connect us. When we share, when we listen, we come to better understand each other and ourselves, and we are given an opportunity to reshape our stories because of shared wisdom. Please join us for this year’s array of inspiring and thought-provoking talks by speakers who have been invited to share their thoughts “on being human.” TEDxLakeTravisHigh was born out of the desire to offer students the opportunity to engage in a learning experience that asks them to explore, research, formulate, and present talks that impact not only their personal and academic growth, but that also engage an authentic audience. Student participation extends beyond curriculum into event production - a culminating celebration of student learning and achievement. TEDxLakeTravisHigh is presented in partnership with Lexus of Lakeway.
