    The Integration of Graphics, Video, Science, and Communication Technologies



    At Forest Hill Community High School in West Palm Beach, Florida, a unique program that integrates technology, science, video, and the graphic arts has been developed to provide students in grades nine through 12 with employment skills for the information economy. This modern multimedia school-to-career academy blends the skills of students and teachers with diverse multimedia interests to provide real-world experiences that support local government and international environmental issues.
    As part of a Sister City project between the City of West Palm Beach and the Tzahar Region, Israel, the students at Forest Hill Community High School are developing an international Internet site that will allow science students, teachers, government officials, university personnel, and environmental scientists and engineers to share data, graphics, video, and artwork about the South Florida Everglades and the Hula Valley in Israel. This international project uses student and teacher talent in the following engineering and graphic application skill areas: Microsoft NT, 3D Studio Max, HTML, XTML, Painter, PhotoShop, PageMaker, Frontpage, Macromedia Authorware, Dreamweaver, linear and nonlinear video editing, and environmental science.
