TEDYouth 2014 was an explosion of “Worlds Imagined.” On Saturday, November 15, New York students gathered for a day of punchy, inspiring talks that brought them to the Sahara Desert when it was a river wonderland for dinosaurs, to the surface of Mars as the Curiosity Rover makes its way up a mountain, and into the kitchen of a tiny house built by a 14-year-old. Below, photos from the event.
