Enjoy the results from the Fountaindale Public Library recent Tween and Teen Summer Camp focused on Video Production. Our Tween and Teen patrons conceived, storyboarded, videotaped, and edited these trailers for fictional films.
July 11th dawned bright and sunny, so the tweens set out on their photo adventure! During this Photo Bootcamp our young patrons learned about photo composition and using the rule of thirds to take better pictures. Their objective was to complete a photo scavenger hunt. Laughing and jumping, dancing and making silly faces, they spent the morning having fun while learning to be better photographers.
The afternoon was sweltering so as the heat index rose, the teens explored the library with its comfortable A/C. The teens learned how to compose pictures and to apply the rule of thirds. With their scavenger hunt they explored the four floors of Fountaindale Public Library.
Both groups did a phenomenal job and had fun while learning photography techniques. Take a look at some of the great photographs they took that day by visiting our Flickr site.

Check out what the Tweens chat about in their very own television shows that they made themselves using Studio 300’s Tricaster TV production system. Their topics range from gymnastics and little sisters to their insight into presidential candidates. This was part of Fountaindale’s STEAM week.
Both our Tween and Teen patrons got creative this week. In three different programs, they learned to make animations, bring dinosaurs to life, and tell a story in six seconds. Enjoy these results from their hard work:
