THIS PROJECT'S DRIVING QUESTION IS...
WHAT CAN WE TEACH THE WORLD IN FIVE MINUTES OR LESS?
In this five week project you will be learning and practicing skills and strategies that all NWP students use on projects. The final creation will be a "How to" video that lays out the steps needed to perform an oft needed NWP skill. Videos will incorporate the following three elements: the step-by-step set of skills, an explanation of why it should be done, and a piece of interesting history about the topic. The entire video will be five minutes or less.
