Khan Academy and Pixar have teamed up to show the math, science, and art behind computer animated movie making. Check it out by clicking here.
BADGING: Watch the introductory video. Create an account (free) at Khan Academy. Complete the challenge of “Building Crowds” from the movie WALL-E. (<– link) The website “checks off” videos and activities as you complete them. Take a screen shot of this page while logged in to your account once you’ve finished watching all 5 videos and the accompanying activities to prove that you’ve completed the entire lesson. (Khan says this takes around 45 minutes). Email the screenshot to Mr. Bezaire.
If there’s enough demand, I can add another “Pixar In A Box” Badging opportunity later in the school year.
