THE CAMP FOCUS THIS WEEK

Morning Focus
Digital Animation and Story Telling
Put your creativity into motion as you learn the fundamental techniques of animation. In this program, you will explore digital animation principles and how to bring your creations to life. This program provides an introduction to animating as well as illustration, character design, properties of movement, and storytelling techniques. No prior experience is necessary. All skill levels are welcome. Put your creativity into motion as you learn the fundamental techniques of animation.

Afternoon Focus
Science of Minecraft: Chemistry and Physics
Do you have a curiosity about science, chemistry and physics? This program was created to teach participants about these exciting STEM topics using Minecraft as the laboratory to design, craft and test experiments through virtual simulations. In our physics lessons, participants will learn about the science of kinetic and potential energy, speed, acceleration, and gravity. Our chemistry lessons will teach participants about atoms, molecules and elements. The chemistry labs will explore the periodic table and create tests to see how the chemicals react – participants will create compounds using molecules and focus on “reactions” by creating things like sparklers, glowsticks, and floating balloons. In this program participants work toward building the ultimate scientific laboratory in our virtual campground to build and test scientific concepts through science-themed builds. No prior experience is necessary! All skill levels are welcome.
