TEDxNorwichED- get involved from a distance 😄

TEDxNorwichED- get involved from a distance 😄
Don't miss out on TEDxNorwichED 2017
View this email in your browser

<<First Name>> -don't miss out on TEDxNorwichED: Inspiring Generations.

In a weeks time, hundreds of people will be gathering in Norwich at TEDxNorwichED 2017: Inspiring Generations.   They'll be hearing over 25 passionate and amazing speakers sharing their 'idea worth sharing'.   

We've got a vibrant and stimulating programme planned, but it looks like you are not joining us.   Maybe you are one of the hundreds who missed out on tickets, which sold out quickly,  or prehaps Norwich is a bit far to travel? 

Well, <<First Name>>,  I've got good news- you can still join in with TEDxNorwichED 2017  next weekend. 

Here are 5 easy ways how... 

1. Join us On-line. 
Just head to www.tedxnorwiched.com from 9:40am on Saturday 18th Mach and you'll find our on-line stream.  We'll be streaming all day- including all talks- until 6pm.   Last year, over 10,000 people joined us on-line-  will you be one of them this year?    

This is the only way to be guaranteed to see all of TEDxNorwichED  2017- the only education focused TEDx in Europe this year!    It'll take a few weeks for our videos to appear on-line-  and nothing beats seeing the unedited, live versions! 

So, why not dip in and out of TEDxNorwichED from the comfort of your own home, or wherever else you happen to be next Saturday?

2. Join in the conversation. 

Be sure to check out social media and our hashtag #tedxnorwiched  - and join in the conversation on twitter on the day.  Last year we trended in the top 10 in the UK for 5 hours- can you help us do it again?

3. Bring your children along.

We're excited to invite children (and their adults) to experience some of the fun in our Be Inspired zone between 12-1pm on Saturday. 

We'd like to invite children of all ages, and their families to join us between 12-1pm on Saturday 18th March, for lots of fun activities, which are being put on by the amazing partners of TEDxNorwichED in our Be Inspired area!

Some of the FREE activities you and your children could get up to include:-

  • Making your own unique Geli Plate print- with ART POCKET
  • Firing your very own rocket, playing with BBC Microbits and newspaper engineering with STEAM CO
  • Fun games and activities with OPEN
  • A special paper plane challenge from INDIGO SWAN...
  • plus much more!

We've also got a fab book shop from the wonderful Norfolk Children's Book Centre with us for the day. 

All you need to do is turn up at The Space, Norwich, between 12-1pm on Saturday 18th March.

Head over to our facebook event for more information.

4. Join STEAM Co. for the post TEDxNorwichED  party. 

 STEAM Co. invite everyone back to theirs after TEDxNorwichED!

Together with some members of the community in Norwich we'd like to invite you to join us for a screening of 'Most Likely To Succeed' - the Sundance festival nominated and award winning film that’s helping school communities reimagine what our children and their teachers are capable of doing.

The evening kicks off at 7pm at Norwich School, in the city centre and is in collaboration with Barclays' Norwich Eagle Lab, Norwich School, Norwich University of the Arts, Norwich Science Festival and Norfolk Youth Arts Festival.

Tickets here: http://bit.ly/TXNMLS

5.  Volunteer (if you've already  signed up)

If you've already signed up to volunteer, but haven't heard from us (or know of someone who hasn't) please do get in touch by reply.   If you've not yet signed up, and would like to join us- then please drop us an email- we've got a few volunteer spots left.

So, <<First Name>>, I hope you are able to join us in some way next weekend!  

Let's work together to Inspire Generations!
