Albert Einstein once said, “You ask me if I keep a notebook to record my great ideas. I’ve only ever had one.” While the genius physicist was probably being a bit modest, his words shed light on the tricky and elusive quality of truly innovative thinking. There are a lot of ideas in this world, but what is it that really makes an idea worth spreading?
We ask TED-Ed Club members to grapple with this big question when preparing to present their own big ideas. These four TED-Ed Clubs shared photos from their brainstorming sessions, and we love what they came up with.

Aptakisic-Tripp’s TED-Ed Club thinks that inspirational, fresh ideas are the ones that can truly inspire change and benefit society.
Craneville Elementary School’s TED-Ed Club knows the value of a unique, relatable idea that doesn’t make you fall asleep.
