Thanksgiving Camp 2015

The Science of Animation

November 23-25 in Oakland

Please note that there are limited spots available each day. Last year, we reached capacity and had to turn away campers so be sure to reserve your spot today!

Mon 11/23 - CAMP FULL!
Tue 11/24 - CAMP FULL!
Wed 11/25 - CAMP FULL!

At our Thanksgiving Camp: Animation, we will explore how animation works. We'll learn what creates the illusion of movement in motion pictures by making several of the devices that were the precursors to modern movies and television. We'll explore what happens in our brain and eyes to create these optical illusions. The projects will surely be the talk of your Thanksgiving dinner and each one is accompanied by a science note to continue the learning at home. In addition to building fun gadgets every day, we'll make creative art projects, play outdoors and watch science movies.

Each child will make and take home:
