Science STARS Hit the Red Carpet Debuting New Documentaries

The Cinema TheaterGet Real! Science, the science teacher preparation program at the Warner School of Education, hosted a red carpet event on Thursday, Apr. 26 at the Cinema Theater to premiere documentaries created by East High School girls. Science STARS (Students Tackling Authentic & Relevant Science), a science inquiry afterschool club for seventh- through twelfth-grade girls at East High School that is led by graduate students studying science education, have met every Thursday this school year. The first half of the year students developed and conducted scientific investigations around the topic of urban ecology (science in our city) that led to noticeable, positive change. As an extension of this work, a subset of the girls then focused on honing their literacy skills the second half of the school year as they worked alongside professional filmmakers and University of Rochester undergraduate science majors to create science documentaries that aired on Red Carpet Night for the community.

Students debuted two science documentaries—one, titled “Txtg can b Trgc,” on the dangers of texting and driving and the other, titled “BPA and our Bodies,” on how BPA plastics affect our health. The event also featured interactive science displays where students answered questions about science being done in their own community.
