Digital Learning - Science in Action Filmmaking Summer Intensive
The Science in Action Summer Intensive (SiASI) is a 2-week program in which high school youth work with Academy scientists and other experts to create professional-quality short films about science. These films are displayed on the public floor in the Science in Action exhibit, as well as on the Academy website. This summer's SiASI program will focus on skeletal adaptations and how they relate to evolution and biodiversity, topics related to our exhibits “Skulls” (coming in May) and “Islands of Evolution.”
