Big Shot Camera Project
In 2015, we brought middle school students from West Long Beach to the Greene & Greene Jenny Reeve House in the Los Cerritos neighborhood of Long Beach. Our team worked with Stephens Middle School and the owner of the historic Jennie A. Reeve house in Long Beach to provide a workshop on local architecture, technology, and photography for middle school students.
Students from Stephens Middle School were transported to the house where they received Big Shot Cameras (scientifically-innovative digital cameras the student assemble themselves.) The students were able to build their cameras, and then use the tools they had made to walk the neighborhood and learn about architecture, while photographing the places they discovered.
