What School holidays?

Normally my school holidays are pretty laid back, a chance to catch-up on all the admin work that gets neglected during the Term. I was also really looking forward to some uninterrupted time to be able to finish up the new EV3 book, just in time for the August release date. For some reason however, this turned out to be my busiest School holidays in a very long time.

I ran two Robotics workshops for the Queensland Gifted and Talented Association, two Robotics / Scratch Programming workshops for MENSA children and an all day "Create your own computer games" workshop for The Engineering Links group. Throw in a Stop-Motion animation workshop for a home schoolers group and some incidental IT support for a conference down the Gold Coast and these last two weeks have just flown by!

Fingers crossed I can find enough time to get my EV3 book ready on time!

Sounds really fun! Makes me wish I was in Australia right about now!

I'm curious about your stop-motion animation workshop. What software do you use? What youtubers or books do you recommend?

Hi Moli, I'm using SAM Animation which is so very easy to use. Not as full featured as some other ones, but I prefer that as it encourages the kids to stick with the basics and concentrate on story lines :)

I haven't come across any good resources that I'd recommend but am happy to take suggestions.
