Animation Machine


What you get

Get animated with a moving-picture machine that you build yourself, and turn still images into amazing animations! Discover the tricks of perception that allow your brain to “see” motion when looking at rapidly-shifting stills. Explore the clever camera tricks that make classic animated films so lively, then create scenes using an optical illusion called a moiré pattern. When the movement hits your eye, that’s a-moiré!

We purchased 3 month subscriptions for 400 students that signed up for our virtual summer program. The Animation Machine was the first month's activity, and our students LOVED it! They can't wait to get their next box!

The instructions were easy to follow and William was really excited when he finished and saw how it worked.
