Share it! Science : DIY Zoetrope Animation STEAM Project - 2 views

  •  
    "This DIY zoetrope is the perfect STEAM project for kids who love art, science and engineering. You most likely have all of the supplies you need around the house, or can get them easily and inexpensively.

    Have you ever played with a zoetrope? Zoetropes are simple devices that pre-date film animation. The viewer looks through the slits in a spinning cylinder and sees an animated image."

Small Scale Animation with Cardboard | The Tinkering Studio - 4 views

  •  
    "As part of the Infinite Versatility of Cardboard last week, we made new cardboard pieces on the laser cutter to use with our stop motion animation stations. We found the animated shorts that resulted so surprisingly delightful that we've continued to offer these cardboard pieces at the animation station a week running!



    Some of the new cardboard pieces are abstract shapes, not much different than what we usually offer in wooden shapes. We also cut out silhouette objects, including planets, houses, and trees.

Easy Stop Motion Animation for Beginners - TinkerLab - 2 views

  •  
    "While my girls have been in a little bit of camp this summer, it's mainly been Camp Mom for our family: local adventures, crafts, and lots and lots of unstructured play. We're lucky to have some great neighbors with kids, and our girls have been lost in imaginative play that expands beyond the reach of anything I could possibly fabricate for them.

    However, we've had a few mornings filled with creative projects and this stop motion animation project is a winner. 

    If you're looking for a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) project, this is for YOU!"

A Complete Guide for Stop-Motion Animation in the Art Room | The Art of Education | Blo... - 2 views

  •  
    "I was first inspired to explore stop-motion when I met influential art ed dude Mark Jones. He's the genius behind some of the best stop-motion animation videos designed, written, and created by kids. I was lucky enough to see him at my state art ed conference a few years back. If you haven't seen these videos - watch them before you go any further!

    The Robot and the Butterfly
    Stand Up Tall
    Stand Up Tall: Behind the Scenes (to help visualize the process)
    See more on Mr. Jones' YouTube channel.
    After seeing the potential, I asked myself: How do I do this with MY kids?"

Pixar In A Box Teaches Math Through Real Animation Challenges | MindShift | KQED News - 4 views

  •  
    "The Pixar In A Box lessons start with a technical problem that animators face and work into the math from there. In each video a real Pixar animator lays out the technical problem, and then students get to experiment with interactive elements to better understand the problem. Gradually the video works towards a more explicit explanation of the math involved, and by the end the student is calculating to solve the actual problems faced at Pixar.

    "A bit of software for Windows and Mac computers.
    Create stop-motion movies from webcam snap shots.
    Add an mp3 soundtrack.
    Export as a .flv video for upload to YouTube.
    Watch the terrible video I made to see how it works."
