Students at Sacred Heart Nativity School are experimenting with video production, thanks to a partnership between the Children’s Discovery Museum and NBC Bay Area’s Project Innovation. The kids have access to a mobile video lab brought to the school, and they get to produce their own videos. The weekly course, called “Discovery Youth,” allows them not only to learn new skills, but also to develop their creativity.
Sacred Heart Nativity School President, Deacon Ruben Solorio, is grateful and explains his excitement. “While academics are the primary focus of the work being done at Sacred Heart Nativity Schools, in the Jesuit tradition, we also believe in educating the whole child,” he said. “We encourage students to increase the scope of their education beyond core subject areas, and to participate in clubs and athletics outside the classroom. One of the offerings this year has been to explore the realm of video production.”
Thanks to the long relationship with the Discovery Museum and NBC, students like Jasmine Leon and Christopher Ceja can experience the art of film making. We invite you to watch the NBC Bay Area video covering the story.
