About TED and TEDx
TED is an annual event that brings together the world's leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that that matter in any discipline -- technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, and development. 

In the spirit of "Ideas worth spreading", TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, ‘TEDTalks’ videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connections.

Govt. Model Engineering College(MEC), Kochi, the first institution in India to hold a TEDx license, has been conducting TEDxMEC annually, for the past 4 years. MEC has always been a pioneer in moulding students with spirit and innovation. Since its inception in 2009, TEDxMEC has come a long way in becoming the platform for a number of renowned personalities in India to gain international recognition.

Teen Speaker Hunt
TEDxMEC is proud to be the first ever TEDx event to offer enterprising youngsters the chance to share the TEDxMEC stage with other inspirations, share their ideas and experiences and showcase their skills to the public. Through TEDxMEC, the Teen Speaker will get the amazing opportunity to share the stage with very eminent personalities. Apart from this, the recognition of being a TEDx speaker is itself highly credible. All speaker videos will be uploaded in the official TEDx Youtube channel.
