Research Projects Used to Create Mini-Documentaries

 

This summer, the College of Menominee Nation Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) facilitated action research projects led by the 2013 Sustainability Leadership Cohort - a part of the USDA-funded POSOH science education project.

 

The project gave students the opportunity to research a topic they found interesting and valuable in the community and get actively involved in the topic. Students learned valuable research skills and worked toward not only collecting and sharing the information, but also implementing their plans and making positive changes in their community.

 

As part of the summer project, SDI hosted a film production workshop. Led by Reynaldo Morales from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Sustainability Leadership Cohort was introduced to the world of film-making. Students had the option to produce mini-documentaries to tell the story of their action-research projects and share community news, opinions, and stories. Watch the videos below.
