2010 Leipzig Germany - Education Abroad

Fredrick Lewis, Sam Girton and Brandon Flayler are working with The Ohio University Office of Education Abroad to take 19 students to Leipzig, Germany for six weeks this summer. We have been planning this trip since we were in Japan together last summer for The Design in Asia program.

Projects

While in Germany this summer, each student will work in a team that will produce a short video documentary. Working as an individual or as a part of a small team, each story idea will be heavily researched before we leave Ohio. Once we arrive, Fredrick will begin teaching the story telling process and Sam and Brandon will be teaching the tools, as the participants begin to build their projects.

Here is who we are looking at for inspiration.
