As an urban school, space is consistently a “challenge” at Hamlin. Of course challenges offer innovative and new ways of looking at things – and no school anywhere has infinite space.
Consider a simple storage closet in Ms. Andrews’ fourth grade class (Hamlin community login required).
Where a number of “grown-ups” over the past decade saw (very essential) classroom storage, the fourth grade students saw more; Their “outside the closet thinking” saw opportunity.
The space was re-organized and we added some Green Screens – from the @RiveterLab and … ACTION! … production begins!
Next step – we’ll be working on some creative soundproofing solutions as we go forward to expand from video to podcast production.
Some of the first work to come out of the currently unnamed studio were thank you videos to the staff at the Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park, the class’s location for STEMming the Gender Gap.
Great job girls – and yes you very obviously CAN!
