INTERACTIVE MEDIA DESIGN ACADEMY
Our program give elementary level students, ages 7-15, a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of technology and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow students to create solutions to real-world problems.
These experiences and responsibilities will give youth the opportunity to work together, to meet deadlines, to see themselves as designers of rich media content and not just consumers of it. In our experience, many youths who participate in such Youth Production Team return to school more confident in their own abilities. Some of the youth who perform successfully on the Youth Interactive Design team could be invited to participate in a grant- funded Out of School programs at RCCE’s sites.
