More TED Talks to Prepare You for Saturday

The registration for TEDxChandlerPublicLibrary this Saturday, October 14, is full! We are so excited to share our program with attendees. If you are fortunate to be one of those who will be in the audience on Saturday, we wanted to share a few TED Talks with you.

As part of our license, we are required to make two TED Talk videos a part of the program. This is probably one of the hardest parts of putting together a program, as well as one of the most enjoyable (aside from working with our speakers, that is).

Here are a few videos we fell in love with, but they didn’t make it into the program on Saturday. They all relate to Connect! in some way. Oh, maybe have a tissue or two nearby when you watch some of these.

We hope you enjoy these TED talks as much as we did:

Angela Patton shares her work at Camp Diva, connecting young girls with their fathers in her talk called, A father-daughter dance…in prison

Rahdika Nagpal is a robotics engineer studying the collective intelligence of insects and fish to apply their rules of engagement to robots in her talk called, What intelligent machines can learn from a school of fish

Aicha El-Wafi and Phyllis Rodriguez have a powerful friendship born out of their connection to the tragedy at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Phyllis’ son was killed in the Trade Center and Aicha’s son Zacarias Mousaoui was convicted with a life sentence for his role in the attacks. This talk is beautiful – The mothers who found forgiveness, friendship.

Hetain Patel’s performance play challenges viewers to think beyond what appears on the surface when encountering others and when we even think about ourselves. He asks the question, Who am I? Think again
