DALLAS – Scot Pankey is a theater director at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School.  This year he decided to make this video the students’ first project of the new year.

“We are a project-based school — there are only two in the Metroplex — and that means you give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions. They had three weeks to work on it, then present as a group what they learned,” Pankey told the Dallas Morning News.

The video, which was shot by students, was completed in a single take.

“This is a great example of how a bunch of technology students let go of their fears, trusted their teacher and got down to Uptown Funk!!!”
