Science and Film: In Your Own Backyard - February 27

Adrienne Frank

In concert with our annual series, Focus on Nature, come explore the intersection of science, media, and storytelling. You’ll learn how to apply the technology and visual literacy skills of Image, Sound, and Story to create a short media project and screen the award-winning giant screen film, Backyard Wilderness. We’ll also use the film as an inspiration to design a project your students can film, edit, and submit to the JBFC for screening! This workshop is developed and presented in collaboration with Groundwork Hudson Valley and Teatown.

Recommended for teachers in grades 3-8 who have completed Image, Sound, and Story training. For inquiries please email

$195 per teacher
