Dreaming Big Documentary

4th great just completed a documentary about Crossroads Academy for our annual fundraiser, Dreaming Big. Your student learned about camera angles, shot composition, storyboarding, and video editing with industry standard software. They worked really hard and produced a great movie. You can click on the link at the bottom of the the page to view their work.

Maker Time

Each week students have time to explore how something works or to build. We use circuits, contraptions, K'nex, learn coding, and many other tools. If you have an idea for this time or a resource you would be willing to donate, we would appreciate it!
