Chemistry and Film

Teacher: Josh Wickline, chemistry

School: Talent Unlimited High School

Project Goal(s): Utilize video-making to provide students with multiple entry points for understanding and explaining physical science concepts.

Description of Activities

Students worked in small groups to brainstorm ideas for short videos that would creatively explain key concepts from the chemistry curriculum. (i.e. illustrate ionic bonds through the story of a high school love triangle). Videos had to be narrative but include a clear explanation of the relevant science. Groups created a shot list and production schedule, shot and edited short videos that were then collected on a private Vimeo channel for Regents review.
