Intel Computer Clubhouse hosts Film Boot Camp

From July 12 to July 26, for the third year, the Film Boot Camp will be held at the Computer Clubhouse on the grounds of Bernalillo High School. The camp, for ages ten through eighteen, is two weeks of daily work creating stories, understanding the various jobs related to filmmaking, story-boarding, filming, acting, and editing. Kids are divided into groups of eight to ten, and each group will create a film. The Film Boot Camp itself is free, with a fourteen dollar charge for snacks and drinks during the two-week period.

Bernalillo juniors attend Leadership Conference in Boston

—Marc Calderwood

Holden Hyer and Michael Ward will be heading to Boston, Massachusetts to join nearly three hundred other young people, ages thirteen to eighteen, from twenty countries, including Russia, Jordan, Israel, South Africa, Palestine, New Zealand, India, Brazil, and the United States. The teens will be in Boston from July 10 to July 15 for the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network’s 2012 Teen Summit. The theme is: Design your Future, Change your World! They will share ideas, learn new skills, and work together on design projects that address challenges affecting their communities.

Hyer and Ward were chosen as youth ambassadors for their outstanding work and interest in science and engineering.

The Intel Bernalillo Clubhouse, a member of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, based at the Museum of Science, Boston, provides a creative out-of-school learning environment where young people from Bernalillo, Placitas, and the local Pueblos work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, build confidence, develop twentieth-century skills, and find pathways to success through the use of technology. Clubhouse members also learn to give back to their communities in ways that help them build self-esteem, respect for others, and commitment to community service.

Founded in 1993 by the Museum of Science in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab, the first Computer Clubhouse has served as a model for many community organizations around the world. The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network has now grown to one hundred Clubhouses serving 25,000 young people in twenty countries a year. For more information, visit
