On Wednesday, April 23, 2014 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. students from Ryan Middle School will display their photographs from the Perspectives program in the Akasofu Building on the University of Alaska Fairbanks Campus.
Perspectives was an eight-week photography and science workshop presented by the University of Alaska Fairbanks 4-H Cooperative Extension and the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District 21st Century Community Learning Center After School Programs. Young ladies from the Ryan Middle School After School Program were asked to examine the world around them through the lens of science.
Students built BigShot digital cameras during the first few weeks of the program and then used those cameras to capture images throughout the spring of 2014. Through their lenses, students not only learned about photography principles, but also concepts of beauty, science in nature, scale, and wavelengths, as well as how these and other principles influence their own perspective.
