Five Speakers Present Ideas On Contemporary Topics
Five Upper School students who are members of The John Cooper School’s TEDEd Club gave five- to 10-minute presentations on ideas they had researched and developed at the 3rd Annual TEDEd event in the Ramirez Lecture Hall on March 28.
The talks varied tremendously covering contemporary topics, including:

“Video Games and Gender Imbalance” by Cathy Zhang
“What Really Makes Us Happy” by Elena Khan
“The Colors in Her Eyes” by Danielle Pham
Heroes: Do You Really Need That Red Cape?” by Caroline Spangler-Sakata
