- "Learn how the nervous systems works! We will do experiments on sensory behavior in cockroaches that allow them to escape from predators (or angry humans). We will also explore an example of how the embryonic brain uses electricity to shape development. Scholars will run the experiments, guided by faculty, grads and undergrads who work in the Neurobiology program here at UW. All you need is a healthy interest in understanding how the brain works!"
- Let’s Do Video! Video Storytelling with Rooted in Rights (HUB, Room 238) Courtney Cole, Peter Rand, Vanessa Link, Jordan Melograna, Clark Matthews, Rachel Miyazaki, Vilissa Thompson, Rooted in Rights
- Got something to say? Work with staff from Rooted in Rights to produce a creative, fully accessible video that advocates for disability rights. You will experience the filmmaking process from start to finish. We will discuss effective storytelling, brainstorm topics, work on story structure, and write scripts. Then, we’ll use a simple set of tools to shoot a professional video. You’ll learn the basics of Adobe Premiere Pro, and edit your own video. Finally, you’ll ensure video accessibility and of course, share them online via social media!
