This workshop provides hands-on learning about how animation works. Concepts include “key framing,” “frame rates” and how the “persistence of vision” makes still images appear to move to the viewer. In this session each girl will construct a simple “thaumatrope,” and a “flipbook” that simulates animation. The girls will view examples of animation at different frame rates and see how animators place images together to create animations. They will also have a brief hands-on experience using ZU3D software and LEGO® characters to piece together a short animated action sequence.
