ASU x TED Talk


I. ACTIVITY:

The Social Studies and History Department takes part in the mission of the school of providing excellent, quality, and relevant educational opportunities to students. The school, American School of Ulaanbaatar, is highly devoted to achieving a community that encourages academic, physical, and creative development, fosters a passion for learning, and inspires intellectual curiosity. We believe that in one way or another, the TEDTalk shares the same goals and aspirations for its audience. In line with this, the Social Studies and History Department will be conducting a Ted Talk Competition known as “ASU x TEDTalk”.

II. GENERAL GOAL:

This competition would like to achieve the following objectives:

• To give an avenue for ASU students to test their public speaking skills;
