Rye Neck High School students and staff members will host TEDxRyeNeckHigh, an independently organized event that’s licensed by the non-profit media corporation TED on March 24, to provide students with an opportunity to engage with issues and ideas that are most meaningful to them.

The event will feature middle school and high school speakers, as well as audience participation in discussions and expressive arts activities that reflect on the theme of “What’s next?” Topics will include cybersecurity, climate change, religion, community service, the Syrian refugee crisis, the future of classical music, teen anxiety, biomedical engineering and more. 

To prepare for the event, the students recently participated in a professional presentation workshop, which was conducted by parent Tom Fox, a business consultant and founder of MyEureka Solutions. 

The event will take place on March 24 from 6:30 -10 p.m. at the Rye Neck Performing Arts Center.
