NEWSEUM ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT – DIGITAL LITERACY PROJECT

NEWSEUM ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT – DIGITAL LITERACY PROJECT

CCMS students  from 3rd to 10th grade, inspired by the innovative NEWSEUM headquartered in Washington, D.C. created their own interactive exhibits on a variety of environmental issues as part of the UN focus on the environment extending from Earth Day , April 22nd through World Environment Day in June. Students created interactive presentations based on the digital and visual formats of the exhibits displayed at the Newseum. Since opening in 2008, more than six million have visited the Newseum  located  near  the United States Capitol and the White House. The Newseum’s seven levels of interactive exhibits include 15 galleries and 15 theaters. Each year, our students hope to express their ideas through digital products on a range of issues they feel strongly about, inspired by this innovative and modern concept.
