Middle School Animation Club Provides Students With Marketable Skills
The St. Petersburg (FL) Times reports on an area middle school where students are getting hands-on animation experience. "The club is making a movie using some of the most advanced animation software around....Indeed, even as the economy struggles, demand is strong for people who can use Flash, 3D Studio Max and other programs that help Web sites, cartoons and movies like Shrek come alive. It's practically college-level material, something rarely offered in high schools, much less middle schools."
