SMS STEAM Producing

Dear STEAM Families,

STEAM Producing students have been hard at work researching plans for an upcoming bat house project. Students researched and found plans for a bat house using quality materials that are cost-effective. Students learned how to read and understand the plans, take accurate measurements, and create a bill of materials. We plan to start construction of the bat houses soon!

This week, STEAM Producing students connected to the Arts and Communications Career pathway through an animation project. Students learned "tricks of the trade" by watching an introduction by Rob Jensen, an animator at Pixar. They learned about computer animation and the use of algorithms. Students experimented with animating a stick figure and are currently working on stop motion animations. I am very excited to see the finished videos!
