Colorado TechFair this Saturday

#edtech

I am getting ready to attend the Colorado TechFair this Saturday where I will be showing off the animations my students make during the animation breakout session. I have been testing the new animation software Frames 5 by Tech4Learning and I have some new techniques demonstrate.

Colorado TechFair is a one-day event that will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 10am to 2:30pm at the University of Denver’s Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management. The TechFair will feature approximately 40 projects created by 1st-8th grade students from Colorado as well as other fun activities, such as a Lego-robotics lab, a Scratch computer software lab, a graphic design work exhibit, and an animation breakout session. Admission is free.

It will be a fantastic day for students of all ages to engage in hands-on, minds-on activities, such as Robotics, Game Design, Computer Programming, Graphic Design, Animation and much, much more.

Categories for competition include: programming, robotics, graphic design, animation, game design. By challenging each student to excel within this competition we are creating new and exciting opportunities that can benefit them for years to come.
