I’ve taught computer animation (in Blender) with the first classroom at Irvin, and today I go back to teach the second classroom.
The kids ooohed and aaahhed the whole time. I hope it goes as well today.
First, we all made an animation together, so they could get the hang of it:
the kids made a little sample animation with this #cardinal (North Carolina’s state bird). They loved that, and now they are animating their own pages. This butterfly story is about half-way done! #scicomm #sciart #blender #AnimationsWithKids pic.twitter.com/dbp5NrciyV

And then I sat down with each kid so they could animate their own page:
Makes each kid be the “director” of their own little section of the movie. And it’s nice to see them do something highfalutin with a computer.
