PRESS RELEASE: Saving Coral Reefs One Video at a Time; Students from Kearny High School have teamed up with Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to create videos that promote conservation locally and globally.

Your coverage is invited at this event on May 29 featuring videos created by students from Kearny High’s School of Digital Media & Design

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Saving Coral Reefs One Video at a Time

Students from Kearny High School have teamed up with Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to create videos that promote conservation locally and globally.

 

La Jolla, Calif. (May 24, 2018)—Can videos created by students help save coral reefs? Through an innovative partnership, the School of Digital Media & Design (DMD) at Kearny High School and Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego aim to find out.

 

Tenth graders from Kearny High School were paired up with scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography to investigate the global impacts of environmental change on coral reefs. The students produced video campaigns that are intended to inspire the public to protect coral reefs and to galvanize the next generation of ocean stewards. The student-made videos will be screened during the Sea & Me event at Birch Aquarium on May 29.

 

“The main priority of this project is to empathize with those who are unfamiliar with marine ecosystems, with an aim to engage underserved communities in the greater San Diego area,” said Heidi Schlageter, Kearny DMD digital arts teacher.

 

Inspired by the idea that local efforts can have a global impact, the students worked with Birch Aquarium’s husbandry staff and Scripps’ coral researchers to learn the role aquariums and public outreach play in understanding and communicating coral biology.

 

More than 70 students participated in teams of 3-4 for the year-long interdisciplinary project connecting English, history, science, and media classes. They created short videos from their experiences, drawing inspiration from pop-culture and Scripps Oceanography science. Some of the videos take a serious tone while others lean heavily on humor or are more tongue-in-cheek; and one is inspired by popular YouTube makeup tutorials.

 

“Until we are able to make environmental impacts around the world relevant locally, we will suffer from isolationism and nobody will be able to act globally to protect our planet,” said Harry Helling, executive director of Birch Aquarium. “We are inspired by these young ocean advocates.”

 

The Sea & Me screening is open to the public and takes place at Birch Aquarium on Tuesday, May 29 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided by the Kearny High School Culinary Arts Program. RSVP is recommended. For more information, visit aquarium.ucsd.edu.

MEDIA ADVISORY – Students from Morse High School Automotive Program Help Develop Paint Design for New 2018 Ford Mustang, F150 Truck; Vehicles on Display Friday at Morse

Media Advisory from the San Diego Unified School District, May 24, 2018

 

Students from Morse High School Automotive Program Help Develop Paint Design for New 2018 Ford Mustang, F150 Truck; Vehicles on Display Friday at Morse                    

 

WHAT: The new 2018 Ford Mustang and F-150 Truck will be on display at Morse High School, featuring a paint design that students from Morse High's automotive program helped create.

 

WHEN: Friday, May 25, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

 

WHERE: Morse High School Auto Shop Lot, 6905 Skyline Dr. (92114). Please check in at the office first and contact Greg Quirin.

 

DETAILS: In fall 2017, students in Morse High School's automotive program were invited to work behind the scenes with Air Design USA, Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint, and Ford Motor Company. This was a top-secret job shadow that provided several students the opportunity to work side-by-side with professional automotive designers and painters to create a paint design for the new 2018 Ford Mustang and F-150 Truck.

 

At the time, both of these vehicles had never be been revealed to the public. The students worked daily for several weeks with the automotive professionals in the automotive paint booth at Morse High. These pre-production vehicles where then transported and revealed for the first time at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) automotive convention in Las Vegas. After the SEMA show, both vehicles were put on display at the 2018 Detroit and LA Auto shows, which attract thousands of automotive aficionados each year

 

The automotive program at Morse High School is just one example of the multiple college, career and technical education (CCTE) opportunities available to San Diego Unified high school students. CCTE courses are offered in 15 industry sectors, including automotive, culinary arts, and broadcast, and are aimed at providing students with skills in-line with local and economic workforce needs, and necessary for success in post-secondary life, whether that be college, entry-level employment or career advancement.

 

SPEAKERS: Students, designers
