Kallisti Media has a dedicated team of scientists and educational specialists who focus on creating exercises to educate and excite the minds of students.
Students comprise a large portion of our audience, and because of this we are dedicated to ensuring that our films are of the highest educational quality. We embrace our educational mission, and believe that our films have the power to impact students and enrich their lives. Our films are designed to encourage tomorrow’s scientists, inventors, and business leaders to explore their creativity and apply their ideas today.
The prestigious museums and science centers that play host to our films provide the ideal setting for our unique blend of entertainment and education. But, the learning does not stop when the film is over. Our educational outreach program aims to enhance the understanding of students about the topics of each film, and to integrate that learning into Visual and Performing Arts, Math, Science, Language Arts, and History/Social Science.
Standards aligned and curriculum-based Educator Guides provide adaptable lesson plans and interactive activities designed for enriched learning in the classroom. Our program offers in-depth opportunities for the audience to learn even more about the concepts and personalities explored in our films.
As a part of our educational outreach, there are incentives/prizes, given to reward projects of excellence. Class competitions are based on selected activities in the Educator Guides, and judged by experts in the field. In the hope that cool projects and a cool gifts might add a little extra energy to the projects. The objective is to encourage classrooms to rise to the competitive challenge provided by this incentive, and to reinforce Digital Age readiness and 21st Century Skills.
Ultimately, it is our goal to work in concert with educators to develop student’s higher order thinking skills, and to promote life-long learning that goes beyond the classroom.
