The Moore Scholars Multimedia Art Camp is a one-week experience that will take place during the week of August 11-17, 2014. Middle school students are invited to participate in activities geared toward helping them create civic engagement-themed projects that might include music videos, radio spots, commercials, art projects, short plays, and other works that incorporate 21st century technology with creative and critical thinking. Students may choose a morning or afternoon session. For more information, please contact Angie Rogers at email@example.com.
The Moore Scholars hosted 58 students from the Greenville Early College Program on campus on April 8, 2014. The Greenville Early College Program is a new program for 6th and 7th graders in the School District of Greenville County and involves a partnership with Clemson University, Furman University, and USC Upstate. Its mission is to provide “college experiences, academic assistance, and acceleration for participants.” During the middle school students' visit to Clemson, the Moore Scholars took the participants on a tour of the athletic facilities, the Digital Media Lab in Tillman Hall, and the Arts and Creativity Lab in Godfrey Hall. They also did a video scavenger hunt that allowed them to interact with Clemson students, faculty, and staff while they learned about various landmarks on our campus.
Moore Scholars have engaged in a collaboration with the Emerging Scholars program during the spring semester this year. Emerging Scholars is an outreach program in which students from some of the poorest districts in the I-95 Corridor of South Carolina attend summer classes at Clemson over three summers during their high school careers. This year, the Moore Scholars mentored Emerging Scholars both online and during two field trips to the low country to help develop an Emerging Scholars debate team. While in the Corridor, the Moore Scholars visited local elementary, middle, and high schools, and other community landmarks, such as hospitals and libraries. The Moore Scholars also participated in a simulation activity in a grocery store in which they had to make a grocery list based on a limited amount of income, while attempting to plan healthy meals for a family of four.
