Project-based Learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. Projects vary from cardboard engineering to stop motion film making. In completing makers-projects and taking a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) approach to learning, we're nurturing resilient and creative individuals prepared for the future.
Stop motion animation is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. Children create their own stories, plan and story-board their process and animate and perform their own film projects.
Why Stop Motion?
Screen-printing, or silk screening, is a printmaking technique which creates bold colour transfers using stencil. Children design their own stencils, build their own screen printing screens and make cool printed products from t-shirts to book bags.
Why Screen Printing?
Light is all around is! Learn about the science of light and dark, shadows and colours with Shadow puppetry. The ancient art form of storytelling through the use of manipulating puppets and light allow us to harness the magical world of light and storytelling in our own shadow theatre projects.
