Otford Public School
Short Films: Maker Space Wars
“Maker Space Wars” is a project based Solar System themed STE(A)M unit which integrates English, science and technology, creative arts and mathematics. Students investigated and explored the topic, whilst simultaneously planning and creating a short Science Fiction film which required the application of knowledge and skills attained throughout the process. The project culminated in a student-led short film festival, during which students shared, explained and reflected on their learning journey with family, friends and members of the wider school community. Students have recognised the value of working collaboratively and discovered that nothing is ever perfect - each step along the way leads to new questions and new opportunities to learn.
