RE: Museum of Science Engineering the Future Video Production Project, October 2006

 

The Museum of Science (MoS), a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation at One Science Park, Boston, Massachusetts and DigiNovations Incorporated, a Massachusetts corporation, 676 Elm Street, Suite 200, Concord, Massachusetts, are creating a brief video program for screening at presentations, professional conferences, and on museum websites. Footage will be from interviews and videography in and around the museum exhibits, offices, and its National Center for Technological Literacy, as well as in several Massachusetts high school classrooms that are using the museum’s Engineering the Future (EtF) curriculum.

 

The central theme of the video production will be to answer the questions: “Why is technological literacy important for all?” and “How does the ETF curriculum for high schools address students becoming technologically literate, and preparing for MCAS Technology/Engineering standards requirements?”

 

Selected Massachusetts classrooms will host a two-person DigiNovations film crew accompanied by MoS EtF project staff for one class session in October. Students will be filmed engaged in EtF project tasks and possibly discussing specific activities, concepts, or the course in general. Formats may include group shots and individual interviews. Museum staff will coordinate with teachers on topics to be filmed, and making the experience motivating for students. No minor student may be filmed without advance written parental consent on an appropriate standard (school or museum) photo release form; student’s teachers will provide MoS project staff with copies of releases for all student participants, for museum records.

 

Any questions regarding the overall video project and classroom video segments may be directed to your student’s teacher or Lee Pulis, Curriculum Developer, Museum of Science, Boston (e-mail: lpulis@mos.org; or phone: 617 216-4921)
