Peter Han and Fabian Fernandez-Han, residents of The Woodlands and founder/organizers of TEDxTheWoodlands, are excited about the diverse lineup of speakers/performers slated for the inaugural event.

“Our amazing speakers and performers come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, yet they all have in common minds that are pattern-seeking, playful and multi-faceted,” said Han. “They have an uncommon ability to draw upon their unique experiences and capabilities in playful and imaginative ways to discern patterns in their lives, to derive meaning from them, and to create new patterns to enrich their world. They all have kaleidoscope minds. They will delight, amaze and inspire the audience with their stories and performances.”

The audience will enjoy the following talks and performances: Serendipity, Power of Optimism, The Mind and Music, Creativity in Education, Design Play for Kids in Extreme Environments, A Serpent’s Kiss, Preparing Students to Change the World, Augmented Reality, A Bollywood Dance Medley, Demystifying Creativity—You Don’t Have to Be Creative to Be Creative, Composing as Performing, Perfect People Principle, Beyond Comprehension, Simple Modest Creativity and much more.

To create an intimate setting for conversation and connections with the speakers and performers, the organizers of TEDxTheWoodlands have limited attendance to only 100 seats.

Those interested in attending the TEDxTheWoodlands conference should register via the event website at www.TEDxTheWoodlands.com. The deadline to register is Friday, September 2.

There is a nominal donation of $25 to attend the TEDx event, which includes lunch and a variety of gourmet snacks throughout the day. LSC-Montgomery, Central Market HEB Houston and A Sweet Intent are a few of the sponsors for this event.

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

College’s History Fair Winner Places First in National Contest

July 15, 2011

Spring, TX. After competing in the Lone Star College-Montgomery Regional History Fair this spring, Annie Salinas, a 17-year-old, home-schooled student from Spring, placed first in her division in the 2011 Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest held last month in the Washington, D.C., area.

Her entry, “Solidarity: From a Polish Shipyard to the Kremlin, the Diplomacy that Shaped Western Europe,” was awarded first place in the individual exhibit senior division. Salinas also received the Legacy Prize sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution & the Creativity Foundation.

“Winning top awards at the National History Day competition is an amazing achievement,” said Dr. Betsy Powers, professor of history and director of LSC-Montgomery’s regional history fair. “Qualifying to participate is quite a rigorous process, but the students’ enthusiasm is matched only by the strength of each entry. That is why year after year Texas makes such a strong showing in the national competition.”

For the past four years, Salinas has begun the “rigorous process” at LSC-Montgomery, competing in the regional fair and qualifying to advance to the
state contest in Austin. At the state competition, Salinas has placed eitherfirst or second for the past three years, securing her a spot in the national
contest.

“National History Day gives me the chance to create and present extensive research projects that go beyond the traditional textbook perception of
history,” said Salinas, who hopes to pursue university studies in history and humanities. “Exploring one small piece of history with such depth allows me to see the connections that tie our world together.”

The 2011 Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest took place at the University of Maryland in June.  Students from all 50 states, plus
Shanghai, Puerto Rico, and Guam, competed for awards with their outstanding exhibits, performances, documentaries, interpretive websites, and historical essays based on the theme “Debate and Diplomacy in History.”

“National History Day has been a great experience for us,” said Lisa Salinas, Annie’s mother and teacher. “It allows students to delve into particular
periods of history on their own, get excited about a topic, and share their expertise with other students, teachers, and professionals who work in fields
related to history. It’s a wonderful program.”

LSC-Montgomery sponsors the regional National History Day contest for high school juniors and seniors in The Woodlands/Conroe/Spring/Tomball/Magnolia areas. The 2012 regional contest is scheduled for February 11, 2012, with registration deadlines held in January.

For more information about the regional history fair competition, contact Dr. Powers at (936) 273-7036 or visit her blog at http://lonestar.edu/blogs/bpowers/.
