BASIC INFO

 

1. It is recommended that you work on this project in pairs or in groups of three. (Some one might be better at shooting the video; others might be better in front on of the camera.}

 

2. If you want to do this as a solo project, you might be better off creating a PowerPoint instead of a video. (This option is only open to individuals, not pairs/groups)

 

3. This project is due no later than Tuesday, January 19th. (The 2nd Quarter ends on Friday January 22nd, just so you know.)

 

4. Completed projects should be sent to me via email (ebrent@archimedesacademy.org) or brought in to me on a flash drive so that I can copy it onto my computer.
