    My favorite thing was learning to do animation. I like making epic battles and setting them to music!”

    Caleb, 7

    I have loved everything about the My Tech High class this year, but my favorite was sculpting and doing stop animation projects. My brother and I have made several projects, and this summer my mom is going to help me set up a camp for other kids in our neighborhood so that we can teach them how to do stop animation projects, too.”

    Sara, 11

    My second son (11) loved his tech class – animation. He wasn’t much into drawing before the class and now is drawing all of the time and wants to take more classes like it.”
