Youth Educating The Public

Youth Educating the Public is a Science and Media Making initiative through a NASA funded education project: Climate Change Education: Science, Solutions, and Education in an Age of Media. For middle and high school students, climate change is an issue that has always been present in their lives. In 2011 and 2012 students participated in a 5 week project during the summer which outlined climate concepts that are commonly discussed but not necessarily widely understood.

The students, scientists, and educators involved in the program used their knowledge to create media in many mediums, including animation, movie trailers, songs, and more. Interviews with scientists and science communicators. Each summer the program culminated with a packed screening of the projects for the general public.

Check out the work and read an article by one of the participants about the process.
