Join us for this four day long day camp and learn how to animate! Middle school students ages 11-13 put their imaginations to work in the museum galleries creating hands-on projects that will culminate with their building a unique presentation that reveals the stories of our city and our country. This week, you will work with artist and video game designer Ken Amarit to use both hi- and lo-tech principles to conceptualize, create, and set in motion your own animation projects.
Monday, August 19- Thursday, August 22, 9 am - 4 pm
Middle School students ages 11-13 are invited to put their imaginations to work to design, program, and play their very own digital history games about the American Revolution. Led by Museum educators, campers will become Revolutionary War experts in the galleries and behind the scenes with the help of curators, historians and conservators. Pixel Academy will introduce campers to the principles of game design and guide them towards making their very own games that they can download and take home.
