Adolescent Health

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

There’s a lot to be said on teens and risk taking. It comes with no surprise that negative examples are oftentimes related to risk taking behaviors. In a report published by The National Academies, it talks about the importance of risk taking and healthy teen development. By providing adolescents with communicative spaces where they can ask questions and speak openly about their risk behaviors, opportunities for growth and learning can be fostered.

Our job in this video was to synthesize the recommendations of a published report and put them into a short video that advocates for healthy risk taking in teen development. With clear language and strong visuals, video is a much more approachable medium for scientific information and gives viewers the most essential information upfront.
