The purpose of the workshop is two fold: to provide a means for scientists and engineers to become more knowledgeable about motion picture projects, and to encourage them to learn how to write and submit scripts. Scientists and engineers are needed as consultants on movie sets, just as lawyers and police officers have been for the past decade.
Applications are due June 9, 2004. Twelve applicants will be selected to attend the workshop. For application procedures and requirements, visit http://www.
The workshop is funded by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research. The National Academies supports accurate portrayal of science and engineering on TV and film, and encourages interested scientists and engineers to get involved.
