Program Details: This is a full week of project-based and experiential learning where Cartoon Network provides different video briefs to choose from. Students will be grouped in teams of 2 – 3 to brainstorm in teams and are encouraged to exercise their creativity and imagination either filming their own content or edit existing content. Once the team’s video concept is approved, students will have the autonomy to work on their own. Cartoon Network professionals will provide coaching and guidance to students’ projects to ensure the video meets the quality standard for publishing. Students’ work will then be published on the social media pages of Cartoon Network as part of their portfolio building.  More importantly, students will have the opportunity to meet the team at Cartoon Network and understand behind the scenes operations of a global media company.

Here is a testimony from a parent who joined last year in 2018:

My daughter took the trip to Cartoon Network and she loved the hands on experience that Natalie was able to provide for her.  She worked on a deadline to create a commercial that will air on social media for the Cartoon Network. Not only that, she got to pitch it to the President of the company.  This was an experience that many college age students would love to have and Natalie was able to provide the real world scenario to my daughter at such a young age. OWN Network provided an amazing experience for my daughter!” From Tim Lange, father of 12-year old daughter from Hong Kong International School.” – HKIS Father
