Genevieve Melody Elementary School
The Westside Media Project
Grant Amount: 10,000
The mission of West-Side Media project and Melody STEM Elementary School is to continue to expose students to the field of media as an art and outlet for communicating their viewpoints and experiences to the general public. The in-school program will provide opportunities and pathways that allow students to build on prior technical and communication skills. WMP will go more in depth this year with equipment setup, producing and broadcasting. WMP will facilitate 4 weekly 60 minute classroom sessions. At the conclusion of week 10, students will be part of a culminating activity where they will have full autonomy to demonstrate the skills they have acquired and showcase short media projects they produced during our 3rd quarterly STEM community engagement event at Melody.
