Library Summer Camp What We Know: Understanding Media and Its Influence

Every day, information comes to us from lots of places – the Internet, magazines and newspapers, TV and radio, billboards, and other media. Whether we realize it or not, all of the information that we absorb affects what we believe about ourselves, the world, and our place in society.

In this camp, students will look behind the face of media information to understand its influence on what we ultimately believe, and create original media information for a variety of purposes.
