D3@PSP learns to ride the wave

We at PSP had a busy week saying the last of our goodbyes to five of our core D3 teens and playing catch-up with the new ones! There are a lot of factors at play when it comes to D3@PSP’s attendance, but we try our best to keep our projects going strong and encourage new teens to jump right in. We had a strong 5-6 teens attend this week, with a few new faces (11-, soon to be 12-year-olds)!

The teens’ films are coming along smoothly with the help of their rubric and their storyboards. As we said last week, these two elements have really kept the teens on track as they help organize the chaos that is filmmaking! We visitedJOYCE on Wednesday with our favorite volunteer, Alex, and PSP’s Educational Services Coordinator, Bailey, to make our movie advertisements come to life! The teens worked one-on-one with designers AdamJordan and Lindsay and took part in a mini-tutorial of the Adobe Creative Suite and helped design their poster! JOYCE continues to be a source of inspiration and excitement for our teens, allowing plenty of creative outlets to dive deeper into our projects! Take a look at their amazing results!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
