On Nov. 6, some Cass Tech students went to the TEDxDetroit event at the Masonic Temple. The annual one-day event celebrates what’s working and what’s next by shining a light on the people who are creating the future. TEDxDetroit consisted of 18 of the area’s leading “creators, entrepreneurs, educators, artists, geeks, designers, scientists, leaders, thinkers, and doers,” who were able to share their grand ideas for the world in a short amount of time.
Cass Tech teacher Anita Crouch attended the event along with some CT students and had good reasons for taking the students to TEDxDetroit.
“I wanted them to see the direction of which the city is moving,” she said. “For them to see a positive image of Detroit.”
Sophomore Tiara Morris, who is a student in Crouch’s journalism class, described the event as “inspirational, and motivates you to go out and do what you want to do.”
In the end, the event did what is was intended to: “share positive ideas for the world from Detroit.”
