Green Ninja is a San Jose State educational initiative that develops engaging middle school science curriculum using research-based approaches. Adventures of the Green Ninja – a superhero – are told in a youth-oriented and humorous way, but grounded in science and data. Green Ninja videos are popular on YouTube with a current viewership of over 2 million. Green Ninja curriculum is designed from the ground up using the Next Generation Science Standards, and teacher professional development videos and workshops aim to support teachers with content knowledge and teaching practice.
Everyone had a blast at the 3rd Annual Green Ninja Film Festival! Over 80 student films were submitted from schools all around the Bay Area. The Green Ninja judges and the festival’s audience worked together to select the top 5 films.
Each of the films were provided feedback during the production process from university students acting as film and science mentors. Students worked under the supervision of their mentors to improve the quality and production value of their films before submitting them to the film festival for judging.
