The NNPS-TV production team completed another Elementary Engineering Design Challenge intro video, which was part of the EDC held at the end of March.
The Engineering Design Challenge is a day-long STEM exercise held four times a year. Four-person teams from each NNPS elementary school compete in the challenge.
The latest challenge is the Mariners' Museum's "Diving into History: USS Monitor" challenge, which has to do with searching for underwater discoveries using a robotic arm.
The NNPS-TV production team - Station Manager Jim Anklam, Producer Nik Long, and Video Production Tech Aaron Moore - shot the "standups" of the video spokesperson on site at the Mariners' Museum. They also used their own aerial footage of the museum. Additional video from the Mariners' Museum and NOAA was incorporated to complete the video.
At the start of the Design Challenge, NNPS-TV's intro video is played for the students, giving them background information and introducing their challenge. The students then try to accomplish the goal using their STEM know-how.
The NNPS-TV production team has created videos at locations such as Jamestown, Busch Gardens, Fort Monroe, and Jefferson Lab.
In addition to creating the intro video, NNPS-TV covered the Design Challenge itself, to report on it in an upcoming "School View" show.
