The Environmental Film Festival’s Student Screening: INVENTING TOMORROW
Presented by: The Environmental Film Festival
The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital (DCEFF) will present its free signature film program for middle and high school students from DCPS and charter schools in all eight wards of the District. We aim to select films that appeal to diverse student audiences and advance the integrative approach of a STEAM education. This year, we will be screening Inventing Tomorrow (directed by Laura Nix), a documentary that follows six talented teenage scientists from Indonesia, India, Mexico, and the U.S. as they prepare for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
After the screening, we will host a Q&A featuring a member of the film team and/or a subject from the film, thus providing student attendees with a singular forum face‑to‑face interaction with key players and deeper engagement with the topics at hand. Customized educational materials aligned with our integrative STEAM approach will be used to enhance the film's pedagogical value.
