"Each Shepaug senior conducts a yearlong senior project, and I'm using this opportunity to bring the dynamic TED format to our community," Sarah said.
Technology, Entertainment and Design (TEDx) is a nonprofit organization based in New York and Vancouver.
"Its credo is that ideas matter, and its mission is to promote the exchange of those ideas to improve life for all," Sarah said.
TED runs large-scale, global TED conferences and gives TEDx licenses to people such as her to organize local, independent events, she said.
"These events consist of short, inspiring talks, normally revolving around one theme," she said.
"The theme I created is `Discovering Tomorrow.' It's open enough to allow for personalization, and students will be interested in speakers' visions of the future in their various areas of expertise."
Shepaug senior Emily Chin will offer a dance performance.
