Students in the INIT 350: Academic Internship and Seminar – Education visited the POST Science Museum of Perugia to continue their video project on Tuesday afternoon. The class is creating two videos for POST’s Smartboard technology that will illustrate a particular subject in science for elementary school children who visit the museum. The videos will be part of interactive workshops, including hands-on activities and experiments, and will also introduce English vocabulary. After the videos are completed, students will lead the workshop.
During this week’s visit, students began the video storyboards with the guidance of museum staff. This is an exciting project for both Umbra students and the museum as they work together to create the first videos specifically for elementary school students. The videos will be used at POST and in elementary school classrooms.
Students in INIT 350: Academic Internship and Seminar – Education also intern with a local scientific high school and a Montessori high school as English teaching assistants.
