BBC STEM Young Reporter
Some of our Year 8 were fortunate to take part in a series of BBC STEM Young Reporter online workshops organised by the BBC. The online event took place over the ‘Zoom’ platform. The 3-hour session was fronted by BBC STEM Ambassador, Marvin McKenzie. Our pupils devised, filmed, presented and edited short video clips on a topic of their choice. The resulting ‘clips’ were critiqued by Marc Settle, a BBC Academy Smartphone Trainer. Other workshops involved Stop-frame Animation, Outside Broadcasts and Radio, Sound mixing and editing including some futuristic 8-D audio!
The workshops were beneficial and informative and helped show our pupils the opportunities that lay a little further afield if they wish to take advantage of them.
Afon Tâf hope to be part of any future events that may arise. Many thanks to all pupils, staff and BBC presenters who formed part of the experience. Below are some photographs taken from the event:
