Lewis-Clark Valley Video Challenge
A University of Idaho video contest will encourage Lewiston students to imagine their futures as scientists, technologists, engineers or mathematicians.
Lewiston is one of three locations currently implementing an innovation that will focus on students, parents and schools to elevate science, technology, engineering and math education as part of a $1.2 million Micron Foundation grant to the University of Idaho.
Led by University of Idaho STEM Access Upward Bound Director Kirsten LaPaglia
and Virtual Technology and Design Assistant Professor John Anderson
, the innovation will challenge students to create a 3-5 minute YouTube video portrait of a professional that uses STEM in his or her workplace. The videos will then be linked on a web-based interactive map.
We want to see videos that highlight professionals demonstrating how they use STEM in their careers and recommendations for how to get there, in terms of educational and financial choices.
Videos submitted by August 31, 2013 will be entered for a chance to win an iPad mini: both groups, Lewiston high school students ages 13-19 and anybody else submitting a video featuring a STEM professional with a video location of Nez Perce County are qualified to win the iPad mini.
