Scandinavian Stories Summer Program
June 28 - July 2 ~ Free / Voluntary Admission
This one-week afternoon summer program is open to 10-16 year olds with Scandinavian backgrounds or any other connection to Scandinavia*.

- write a personal story, a script, and create a storyboard
- collect digital material for their film (photographs, moving images,
text, illustrations, audio and music)
- record a voice-over
- edit their own short film through Windows Movie Maker
The program provides one in-class computer per student, as well as audio equipment, a scanner, and digital cameras.
