“Stop motion animation is a great vehicle for cross-curricular project based learning, and we’re excited to be working with Stop Motion Pro, SchoolTube, and our other sponsors to introduce students and educators to this versatile teaching tool,” said Kendra Ericson, Tool Factory’s Director of Educational Services.
“Adding animation to the school curriculum is fantastic for both students and teachers,” said Stop Motion Pro Director Paul Howell. “Kids love the freedom to express themselves, teachers can see learning outcomes being achieved, and parents get a kick out of seeing their children using technology creatively. Stop Motion Pro is excited to support this competition and hope that the “Pirates!” theme inspires some fun animation!”
