Lens on Climate Change

NSF Awards: 1513320

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Undergraduate, Graduate

The Lens on Climate Change project is a engages middle and high school students in producing short videos about climate change topics in Colorado, specifically ones that are impacting students’ lives and their local community. Participating schools are located in rural, suburban and urban Colorado, many of which have diverse student populations, often from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. University graduate and undergraduate students and community college students mentor middle and high school students in research and video production. With the help of these mentors, student groups select and research climate topics, interview science experts and stakeholders, and produce videos.

The program aims to engage students in self-motivated research and learning about a climate topic. Furthermore, it serves as a way to spark students’ interest in a career in science by matching them with college students for the program duration and bringing them to a university campus for a final screening event. Evaluation results show that the process of video production is a powerful tool for students to explore and learn about climate change topics. This approach of teaching science with videography in an active, self-directed style can easily be transferred.
