Stop-Motion Animation: Day 4 - All Stop No Motion

Today was the last day of our 4-part Stop-motion animation class.  It doesn't look like anyone actually finished a movie but that's OK, we had a great time learning how the process works and horsing around with new friends.

TinkerCAD @ Elmwood Elementary

Today, Ahren visited Elmwood Elementary and the classrooms of Mrs. Predovich, Anderson, Jerzyk & Windisch. Ahren demonstrated the 3D printer to approximately 80 kids. Students quickly learned the basics of TinkerCAD and designed a small name plate which Ahren then printed out on his return to the library.

 What a great day!
