Last week students completed a stop motion STEAM challenge. STEAM challenges are great for promoting Learning Skills: responsibility, initiative, cooperation, organization, independent work habits and self regulation. 

Students collaborated in creating short Lego stop motion videos. They used the Stop Motion app on the iPad and learned about stop motion techniques (such as frame rate).

The challenge:

Mellow: Create a stop motion animation film using Lego. Try to make your animation fairly smooth by using an appropriate framerate. .

Tangy: Step it up and make your film a thing of beauty by including a variety of Lego pieces, colours and movement

Extra Spicy: To make things needlessly complicated, add titles to your Lego movie using a whiteboard and marker and have your movie tell a story.
