WRITING & HOSTING THE EDUCATIONAL SHOW
Three intense weeks to learn how to script and host short YouTube science, technology, engineering, and/or math-related videos or audio podcasts to inspire youth to consider a future in science. Workshop-style lectures with industry guest speakers develop basic scripting, hosting, and video production skills in the context of understanding digital media literacy, K-12 education, science advocacy, and engaging a non-technical audience. And if we like what you’ve made at the end? You get a spot in the next season of Science Out Loud.
The 2015 run of the class—complete with lecture videos, timeline of student work, blogs, and instructor insights—is freely available on OpenCourseWare.
