During Imagine Science Abu Dhabi 2018, we will once again work with local middle and high schoolers to encourage the production of films exploring science.
Students shoot on their mobile devices and come with footage ready for download. They will then receive a short course in editing, in order to put together short films on the topic, which will be given a special screening at the festival!TIMELINE
