SAM: Stop-Motion Animation Workshop
Tuesday, February 19 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 5 - 8
Explore a unique stop-motion animation software created by educators for educators. Developed by Tufts University, SAM Animation provides flexible and creative ways to engage students in science, math, and engineering explorations. By capturing a series of still images frame by frame, stop-motion technology allows learners to represent their thinking in the form of a movie—kind of like a digital flip-book.
Create an animation you can share with your students, and leave with ideas about how this software can support your students' learning. Our staff will also provide an overview of the services and programs available in the Educator Resource Center in the Lyman Library, emphasizing support for teachers as learners.
Participants will receive a complimentary single license and/or iPad app. Please bring your laptop or iPad. (Laptops will be available for those unable to bring their own device.)
SAM animation software is compatible with both Mac computers and PCs. A demo version of the software is available. Co-presenters are from iCreate to Educate, a company started at Tufts University that offers professional development and support to teachers.

One of the world's largest science centers and Boston's most attended cultural institution, the Museum introduces about 1.5 million visitors a year to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) via dynamic programs and hundreds of interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Its 10,000-square-foot Hall of Human Life draws on the latest discoveries in the life sciences to engage visitors in their own biology and health. Other highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Butterfly Garden and 4-D Theater. Reaching over 20,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. Its National Center for Technological Literacy®’s engineering curricula have reached an estimated 79,200 teachers and 6.9 million students nationwide. Visit mos.org.
