Animation: This animation course will examine 'early' forms of animation (students will create their own Thaumatrope), early computer-generated graphics (including the history of Pixar) and a debate of traditional vs. computer animation.
Each day, students will learn and develop their own computer animations using Adobe Flash Professional in progressively more challenging projects. Along the way, students will learn about frame-rate, picture resolution and the future of animation.
No refunds will be granted unless the spot can be filled by another child on the waitlist. Refunds within one week of the start of the course will incur a $25 processing fee.
Waitlist will be handled in order until 24 hours before the event. At that time if a spot becomes available, the entire waiting list will be notified at the same time and the first to respond will be offered the spot.
The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) is proud to introduce Imagineering, a beyond school enrichment program for SRVUSD students in grades 4 to 7. The goal of Imagineering is to spark student interest in choosing STEM classes in middle and high school with the ultimate goal of identifying more STEM majors who will ultimately become highly sought after talent in the US corporate workplace.
The program consists of several themes, each of which is taught in four (4) one-hour classes. These courses are designed to provide a serious, but enjoyable, science experience to supplement the science exposure elementary and middle school students receive at school. Currently these classes are targeted for beginners, but as more children cycle through the program, there will be level 2 and 3 classes offered in these content areas as well.
The curriculum for each theme is developed by a master teacher, who also teaches the class. Each class is supported by student mentors, middle and high school students who are knowledgeable in the content and skills involved in the program. Mentors are provided, with a mentor at each table group to provide individualized instruction. Imagineering is a hands-on program with students learning practical application within each of the themes.
