This study reports how 31 adolescents enrolled in an informal academy focused on STEM and digital literacies reflected on their experiences by creating short multimodal videos. Initial findings reveal how students remixed a variety of modes—including photographs, videos, text, animation, and music—to reflect on their learning, collaborations, and digital projects. Students simultaneously composed for multiple audiences through their multimodal reflections, while learning more about themselves and new technical skills.
