WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A group of Purdue students is creating science documentaries for kids in Tippecanoe County. It's a summer course through the Brian Lamb School of Communication that shoots video in the Celery Bog in West Lafayette.
The course lasts a month and teaches Purdue students about videography and scripting a documentary. Those documentaries will teach elementary school students in Tippecanoe County about weather, habitats and erosion. Student Jazmyn Edwards said this is one of her favorite classes at Purdue.
"It's very hands on. We learn some things back in the classroom, but we get a chance to come out here and actually use the video cameras and learn what it takes to make a film and make a documentary," said Edwards.
Course professor Doug Osman said any Purdue student can take the course. He said the videos will be sent out to Tippecanoe County schools and the local libraries.
As Purdue classes end for the semester, campus bar representatives and local law enforcement met to discuss what they noticed during the semester.
More than 45 kids got a special Christmas gift from the mayor of Lafayette.
Authorities make two arrests Monday night in connection with a counterfeiting case.
