This year’s TEDxColumbus on Nov. 11 at COSI will celebrate “A Moment in Time.” During the day-long experience, 18 speakers and performers will present their discoveries, innovations, observations, and more in engaging 18-minute presentations.

If you haven’t watched TED videos before, or you aren’t sure how TEDx is different from TED, you should read this simple explanation.

The speakers are all from central Ohio and will offer astonishing lessons and surprising stories. We caught up with a dozen of this year’s speakers to get a quick taste of what to expect from their TED talk. Check the brief videos out below.
