10 Second TV Spot
Science, Technology, and Math are separate subjects, each with its own methods. For a brief explanation of each view this PowerPointtm. Within technology there are nine core technologies:
|Electrical||Electronic||Optical and Laser|
Your task is to create ten-second long video advertisement for science, technology, mathematics, or one of the nine core technologies.
- Define the Problemóreview these rules and write a synopsis in your engineer's notebook. Research the topic using available resources.
- Generate Concepts—brainstorm ideas. Pick a topic. Find a definition or a quick explanation. List some examples if you chose a core technology. Decide on a solution to develop further.
- Develop a Solution—do a timeline or storyboard in your engineer's notebook.
Construct and Test a Prototype
- What title will you use?
- What still pictures will you use?
- What video clips will you need to shoot?
- What will you say about the topic?
- Who will be listed as the producer or provider?
- What music will you use?
Evaluate the Solution—Watch other 10 second spots and compare them to yours. Decide on ways to improve your video. Modify and resubmit.
Present the Solution—have the teacher watch your video.
- Shoot the needed video clips.
- Open MovieMaker (or other software)
- Bring in the first still picture.
- Put a title on or before the first picture.
- Add the video clips, if any, that you shot.
- Add additional content (what you are going to say on the topic).
- Add credits with you as the producer or "provided by."
- Add the music.
- Edit everything down to 10 seconds, exactly.
- Save the movie (not just the project) and hand it in.
- The score of up to 10 points will be given to the video that does the best job of selling the "product", i.e., Science, Technology, Mathematics, or one of the nine Core Technologies.
- Credit will be given to the students whose name is listed as "producer" or "provided by" in the credits.
- 1 point will be deducted for every second that the video is shorter or longer than 10.0 seconds.
- This is an individual activity.
- Each video must be exactly 10.0 seconds long.
- The video must contain a title, an image or video clip, and some content
- The video must contain music.
- The video may be modified and resubmitted as desired up until time is called.
