Animating Science Workshops
I recently taught Animating Science for kids 8 to 14 at the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, VA. I am offering these kinds of workshops at the McLean Project for the Arts, the Bower Center and other venues. As I am doing more research about best practices in science education, I am finding evidence supporting my use of both phenomena based learning and animation.
What is Phenomena-Based Learning?
In Anim8Nature workshops, students have the opportunity to then animate a science phenomena. How is this a powerful educational tool?
