For her thesis, Kristen sought to understand students' processes when creating a pathogen Public Service Announcement using iMovie, and to examine the benefits and challenges for students when integrating media production into an 8th grade science class.

Based on the study findings she argued that video production, in addition to teaching students how to use and understand the new media they are immersed in during their everyday lives, enhanced their understanding of science concepts and developed real-world science skills and practices. https://sites.google.com/a/scds.org/kristen-sorensen/
