Live Action Comic Book - Day 2

We're wrapping up today by scanning whatever pictures we had finished and opening them up in Photoshop! From there, we used the paintbucket tool to bring our pictures to life. Everyone got a little experience with Photoshop, even if we didn't all finish our comic strips...

Live Action Comic Book - Day 1

It's comic time! In this class, students will brainstorm comic strip ideas and act them out. Once pictures of every scene are taken, we will print, trace, and upload them to Photoshop to be edited! 

Today, we finished taking pictures. Next class, we will trace and color them in using Photoshop!

Movie Making - Day 4

We are wrapping up (or are we...) today as we finished the last of the scenes. We are well into the editing process now so we are learning Adobe Premiere quickly! We are getting familiar with the Keying, cutting, and Timelines!

We are extending the class into next week so we will continue editing!

Here are some of the finished products!

Summer STEM TinkerCAD at John Mills

Today Project Next Generation went on the road and visited the Summer STEM class at John Mills elementary. We brought the 3D printer and showed the students how to use to design their own personalized keychains! We had 16 students!

Movie Making - Day 3

It is crunch time. With only one week left and only a small portion of filming done, we turned on all cylinders. We got the green screen up and went to work. Some of us worked after class a little, but we definitely have our work cut out for us. I believe in everyone!!

Movie Making - Day 2

Today, we were pressed for time (as usual) so we had to hurry with our scripts and get going on the filming process as soon as possible. We made shot lists and prepped for shooting.

Next week we will continue with filming and hopefully be done. After that, the tedious editing process will begin!

Movie Making - Day 1

We're starting off the summer right by doing a four-part movie making class! In this class we will work together to script, plan, shoot, and edit our very own movies using our video cameras and Adobe Premiere!

Today was all about scripting and planning! We split up into teams and started on our scripts. In about two weeks, we'll have the greatest horror spy superhero movie ever! (Hopefully...)

Hour of Code

Who doesn't love being in a nice, cool, air conditioned room coding on a hot summer day? We spent an hour brushing up on our coding knowledge or learning it for the first time!

 Using, we had fun while learning basic block coding too!

Robot Club

We're starting the summer off with some robot building! We are just about done with the base of our new bot. This time around, we have no instructions so we will rely on what we learned from the last build!
