Welcome to
Making History

Making History is designed to help children discover something in their family or cultural history that inspires them to follow their dreams. All the students become history ‘detectives’ in the process!  Students ultimately create a short film of their journey of discovery. Working on the premise ‘Everybody Has A Story’, the project opens up a world of personal historical & cultural discovery for students using leading digital technology and enables them to tell their story through film, creating their own unique historical legacy.

How it works

A key part of Making History is developing a generation's ability not only to discover the stories of their ancestors but to capture these on film.  Learning to develop, edit and film these stories will help them to find and share their "voice".
