    Global Warming is an extremely important topic that needs to be educated to younger students so they know how to help the earth. I loved learning about how the IMAX films are created. I think students will be interested in learning about how they can help the planet.

    This is such a great way to teach students. It allows them to see the impact of actions and choices played out on screen. Imax is great! I hope that there will be other Imax topics in the future.

    I was fascinated by the facts about what it takes to film this in IMAX. I had no idea that they could only film a few minutes at a time. Wow. Looking forward to incorporating “fun facts” into my classroom lesson.

    I really enjoyed listening to the Imax webinar! I thought it was very interesting to learn that the cameras and film they use are only good for shooting a few minutes of film and then it takes 15 minutes to reload and get filming again. This makes me appreciate the Imax films even more!! I plan on sharing this info with my class when we watch Imax videos that relate to our school work. I am going to try and come up with a lesson plan that is developed around the Artic and get it in before the end of this school year….fingers crossed. Thanks again Brain Pop for making our lives as educators easier to introduce such interactive technology to our students.

    I loved listening to this webinar. My two children ages 5 and 7 sat with me and were so interested about the polar bears. They kept asking me questions and just wanted to learn more. WE can’t wait to go see it in IMAX. Thank you so much for sharing your time about this amazing experience.

    I now am planning a new lesson plan around your IMax movie to introduce after we finish our state exams. I’ll pass along my lesson plan to my science teachers with your Imax clip and all information you have provided during this inspiring webinar.
