Sat., Jan. 12; 9 a.m. – noon

Phipps' Science Education Department would like to invite you to a Videography Workshop for Educators with local filmmaker Kirsi Jansa! Kirsi will introduce you to basic videography and visual story telling skills with her workshop and help you develop a set of tools for using this very visual medium with your students. These skills will prove useful in completing this year's "Urban Garden Infomercial" Fairchild Challenge and other multimedia-based projects throughout your school year.

About the Educator: Filmmaker and journalist Kirsi Jansa is the creator of the documentary series Sustainability Pioneers. Her previous series, Gas Rush Stories, received critical recognition in southwestern Pennsylvania and in national media. Kirsi was born in Finland and was a video journalist with the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation before moving to Pittsburgh.

Arrival Instructions: Educators will meet at the Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) Classroom. To access the CSL, follow Frew Street (located between the Oakland/Schenley Park Bridge and the Christopher Columbus statue), which will take you to the lower campus. Guest parking spaces are available on your left as you approach the CSL.

This event is just $6 per person to attend and includes Phipps admission for the day. Phipps will provide light refreshments during the workshop and Act 48 Continuing Education credits will be available. Please email High School Program Coordinator Emily Johns at with any questions.
