How Clubs Work

In TED-Ed Clubs, students work together to discuss and celebrate creative ideas. Club leaders receive TED-Ed's flexible Clubs curriculum to guide their school's club and to help inspire tomorrow's TED speakers and leaders.

Identify Your Passion

"What makes your heart beat faster?" The first part of the Clubs curriculum has members explore the ideas they're passionate about. By diving into activities that expand curiosity, club members will identify and discuss what matters most to them.

Choose Your Idea

"What is your big idea?" As members journey through the Clubs curriculum, they'll be challenged to identify and shape the story only they can tell. Through guided brainstorms and active peer feedback exercises, members will craft their very own TED-style talk.

Start Talking

"How can your idea change the world?" By the end of their club cycle, members will have recorded their very own talk and uploaded it to our TED-Ed Clubs YouTube channel, which can then be shared with their families, friends, communities and the world.

Make Your Voice Global

In a TED-Ed Club, you discover and explore great ideas with new (or old) friends. You'll research and develop your ideas worth sharing and learn how to present your ideas to the world in the form of TED-style talks.
