Mission Statement

ACME provides underserved learners with professional mentorship in creative skills classes (middle school through college) to foster leadership, innovation and 21 st century skills.

Description

Established in 1994, ACME runs two primary programs:

ACME Online: a participatory (social network style) web portal where students post creative projects (art, animation) for review, critique and feedback by peers, teachers and professional mentors, mastering the language and practice of collaboration, communication, revision and presentation.

ACME On-Air: a regular series of live video-conference telecasts between professional mentors and students in school classrooms to critique work and provide expert guidance, tips/tricks and creative solutions for student challenges. Students must learn to communicate, defend their work, and accept constructive criticism. They compete and qualify for these "face-time" sessions with the professionals through dedicated participation and peer review on the ACME Online website.
