Smithsonian Summer Multi-Media Workshop – get involved

The Smithsonian Institution is hosting a summer multi-media camp for high school students in the DC Metropolitan Area with cognitive/intellectual disabilities. The Smithsonian Institution invites 20 High School students with cognitive/intellectual disabilities to participate in a 2 week day camp. During this camp, students will explore the Smithsonian Museums and document their experiences, using digital cameras and videos. Student participants will then use computers to compile collected their digital images and share their findings on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, with their camp peers and friends. In addition, the students will learn about the museums, collecting digital images, compiling the images, using computers and connecting with Social Media programs.
