The past two months at the Paschalville Neighborhood library have been super fun!
Participants have engaged in a diverse range of activities including song writing, recording, beat making, storytelling, programming, pico-cricket boards, stop motion, and more.
Here’s a soundcloud playlist with some of the stories and songs we recorded in September.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/57797206″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]
Here’s a video of the Cat Box we made with our PicoCricket Set.
The Cat Box meows when it’s shaken, giving the illusion that there is a kitten within it.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y8gtwoHSQ0&w=560&h=315]
Within the box is the PicoCricket Set with a homemade tilt switch. The PicoCricket Set was put together and programmed by participants.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGuU_Fc0cYY&w=560&h=315]
Lately, we’ve been playing with stop motion. Participants make characters out of paper, use a camera on a tripod to take photos, and learn to edit in iMovie to put the stop motion movies together.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKea2E0ES9s&w=560&h=315]
