Thalun ICT students in grades 6-10 have been playing with reality by learning how to make toys and favorite video game characters come to life, turn their friends into powerful magicians, send rockets into outer space, create mysterious self-solving puzzles, and invent pizza that gobbles itself up. (Clean-up still required!)

Though the end-of-the-trimester fairy is about to come and hit pause on another school year, students have been busy making props, characters, and sets for their own stop motion animated films in ICT class.
Grades 6 and 7 before, during, and after making their films
Since we only had a few sessions to go over the basics, techniques, tools, and software, we adopted a “Silicon Valley” mindset of playful experimentation, win or lose.
Whether the final outcome was glorious, a failure, or a glorious failure, what was most important in this project was that students had fun, built their creativity muscles, left their comfort zones, and dabbled with imagery, sound, video editing, and computer software.
Have a look at more experiments. And let us know what you think in the comments.
