TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

San Miguel High School will host its first TEDx talk today.  TEDx stands for technology, entertainment and design.  It is a national brand with a strict speaking format. 

"The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level."

This is the first time these four San Miguel H.S. juniors will be doing a TEDx talk. Each student,  interviewed prior to the event, will explore a topic and share their perspective on it during the event.

The theme for today's talk is 'The Road to an Answer' and will cover topics like - Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Controlling our dreams; and Reduce stress...act like a baby.

The hope is to spark a discussion in the community on problems and possible solutions.
