Youth and Technology Project underway in Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Two journalism students from Syracuse University are in town through Sunday working on a Carnegie-Knight initiative on the future of journalism called “News21.”

The Carnegie and Knight Foundations have funded 12 journalism schools to participate in the project with the hope the schools can help journalism make the transition into the digital age.

News21 has teamed with a “Christian Science Monitor” project called “Patchwork Nation” that is exploring 11 different types of American communities, which includes Los Alamos.

The Syracuse News21 group is exploring the topic “Youth and Technology” in each of the 11 “Patchwork Nation” communities.

Syracuse fellows Brad Horn and Melissa Romero arrived in town Wednesday and began meeting people and conducting interviews.

Horn, 32, is a master’s candidate at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Horn is focusing his graduate studies on multiplatform journalism, NPR-style radio and online storytelling. He has a self-designed degree in documentary studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was on the team that produced the Online News Association’s 2005 Student Journalism Project of the Year.
