Big Screen Science Workshops Kicks Off at NHMU
Science teachers sporting tripods, iPads, and cameras populated the Natural History Museum of Utah last week to learn the fundamentals of filmmaking and how they can use this as a teaching tool in their science classrooms this upcoming year. The POPS funded workshop, called Big Screen Science: Fostering Science Inquiry Through Filmmaking, kicks off our 2017-2018 school year and is one of many to come in our mission to support and inspire teachers to tap into their students' creative sides using digital media arts.
One of the participating teachers left us some encouraging words: "The work you put into creating the learning plan, sequence, and materials is obvious and when combined with expertise and enthusiasm means we feel empowered to change how we teach. Teach on!"
Well, we plan to. If you would like to jump in and join us for a workshop, check out our other educational offerings, or attend a screening, where film meets classroom.
