Video Lab (6-12) is a unique Digital Story Telling and Digital Narrative Program carefully developed by CLACE for NTD and designed under NASA Innovation in Climate Education (NICE) in collaboration with our Fiscal Agent OpEPA.
CLACE’s Video Lab team lead by cinematographer Juan Ignacio Stewart allows our students to foster critical multimedia while filming, digital storytelling, and video editing. Our students have produced a total of 27 videos that explored climate change topics and environmental issues. The success of this program has been outstanding and we plan to expanding on to other topics aimed to continue to encourage our young stewards to integrate community, social and other relevant topics of great impact to diverse youth and Latin American communities around the globe.
Additional Funding: CLACE received NCAR’s Diversity Grant funding to be able to expand our diversity efforts to reach, recruit and retain students from non traditional groups by bringing a total of 15 high school Video Lab students to present 15 climate change commentaries/videos at AGU conference the first week of December 2012. Under this grant, two of our Latina students will be interns NCAR for 10 weeks. UPDATE: One of our Video Lab interns was hired as an extended intern at NCAR.
HIGHLIGHT: California Governor Brown’s channel “Climate Changers” have included our students amazing climate change videos. Two have been uploaded and others will be up in the next two weeks. Visit http://www.youtube.com/oprclimatechange and click over “Youth Perspectives”
