Staff from GLAS Education (Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM) conducted an afterschool STEM class about video communications using free software and a green screen at Northwestern Settlement’s Rowe Elementary School. As part of the Settlement's Teen Program, the goal of the activity is to help youth become proficient in electronic communications to learn important technological skills while creating programs for their school, their community, and themselves.
