Challenge: Animation

Back to Challenges

STEAM topic(s) Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths

We want to broaden the scope of STEM topics to engage creative minds, so we have produced this STEAM challenge. Using the free Zu3D app, young moviemakers will be inspired to create their own home movies, where the limit is their imagination - and their props!

This activity shows how technology has many uses, some of them unexpected. The students will be tasked with making a simple storyboard to plan out their movie, learn how to create their set, then take a step-by-step approach to creating their film.

The Zu3D app allows frame-by-frame comparison, variable playback speeds, and special effects.
