It may surprise you (it surprises me all the time) but a lot of young people are deeply interested in how our world runs.

Especially young people who also have a passion for journalism.

One of those young people, Jonathan Horwitz, a graduate fellow at the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, contacted me some months ago asking about water.

He wanted to do a multimedia project on the subject and eventually settled on the complexities of the Kern River.

Below is a link to his finished product, which I think deserves an A+.
