Hands-on learning awaits...

Start thinking of your storyline now and then create your own animated film at SciWorks’ “Animation Creation” Family Workshop on Sunday, January 12, from 2 to 5 p.m.

This is a fun, educational family activity in which you’ll create your own animated short film using Kaplan Early Learning Company’s Stop Action Motion (SAM) software. Draw things and use fun materials to create your film, and then show it at the “Animation Showcase!” KaplanELC
