I chose these traits in my Rubric because you must possess these traits to be successful in telling a Digital Story.

This short video clip and others like it is appropriate for a young audience and will hold their engagement. My daughter liked this video and was interested in looking at other similar videos.
|Originality, voice, creativity||How creative was the production? Did the presentation exhibit an original sense of voice and a fresh perspective?||
This video clip is creatively made and is inspiring to young people to learn more about STEM topics. I would heartily recommend this short story to any parent of young children and or ECE or kindergarten students to introduce topics.
This video is an excellent example of digital story telling can be used to educate people of all ages. Many young people need to be exposed more to STEM and world of possibilities that this career path may lead.
Final score 30/30. I would highly recommend this format or digital story to introduce new STEM topics to primary school age children .
