Senior REM 2019

Shakat’s team was at REM again! This time we turned the classroom into a movie set and produced a short commercial of an Eject-a-bed, a device that helps people get out of bed in the morning. Additionally, we interviewed a few individuals and created a documentary about REM. We also plunged into the fascinating world of vlogging and youtubing. It was such a pleasure and an honour to be the part of 2019 Senior REM!
