Every year in the state of Colorado alone, 15,000 students participate in the National History Day competition. History Day is a national competition that is dedicated to teaching students history through an intensive study of specific historical events. The organization strives to illuminate history for students in middle school and high school by presenting an annual theme and the task of creating a project to present the yearlong study of an idea, event, or person from the past. Through work and a precise following of many steps, students will be able to develop an exceptional project that could even win some awards at the end of the school year.
Our glaciers are melting. we have known this for sometime, but the film "Chasing Ice," which documents the Extreme Ice Survey, shows this very well. The film had a perfect balance of documenting the trials and work of the scientists as well as sending a meaningful message. This film is trying to prove that we have to be careful with the earth so that it will still be beautiful in the future. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in science, engineering, or photography, as there are much of all three of these.
