Congratulations to Alexander Emerson, a student at Brookwood School in Massachusetts, for being one of 16 finalists chosen for the first White House Student Film Festival and congratulations to our colleague Rich Lehrer, whose innovative approach to teaching science resulted in Alexanders film “Tomorrow’s Classroom”.
