Stop Motion Animation Camp


Over the week, we’ll learn more about the stop motion process, how it’s evolved, and even create our own animated short! We’ll provide the computers, cameras, and LEGOs, but the story is up to you!

No prior experience necessary. As classes build, attendance each day is mandatory. RSVP required: click here to sign-up.

Legal Guardian must drop child off at STEAM Central to sign safety waiver.

As the Teen Republic is designed for teens, we may show PG-13 films. Since that designation is so broad it’s up to guardians and kiddos to decide if any given film is appropriate.

Movies are shown Wednesdays at 5pm and Saturdays at 1pm. 


February 6 & 9: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (PG-13)
February 13 & 16: Love, Simon (PG-13)
February 20 & 23: If I Stay (PG-13)

Explore new Minecraft worlds. Delve into the deepest dungeons. Travel to the darkest parts of the Nether. Work together to build amazing constructions!

Participation does not require a Minecraft account! Given the frequency with which this club meets, seating is first come, first serve.
