Abstract: The Green Ninja Film Academy middle school curriculum combines climate science, art and English Language Arts to promote youth voice through youth-created films that situate learners and communities in the social, cultural and environmental impacts of climate change. In this iterative design-based research study, data sources include surveys of climate science proficiency and identity and agency with respect to climate science (N=316), as well as case studies from classroom observations, interviews and curricular artifacts of one focal sixth grade classroom. Analyses suggest youth used filmmaking as a tool of identity negotiation and performance as they played with possible science and social trajectories.
