A new Minecraft theme to encourage campers to explore themes that interest them while creating within the Minecraft platform. This year the theme is STAR WARS, the legendary film series that has entertained young and old alike for three decades.  Build replicas of famous Star Wars structures within your Minecraft and collaborate with other participants to create a Star Wars world within the game. As in all our Minecraft classes, detailed attention is paid to the design attributes of the Star Wars art and architecture and how we can deploy them within a Minecraft setting.

When we think of stop-motion, we think of claymation – the clever videos made using carefully controlled clay objects. But there are numerous other ways to make interesting and fun stop-motion videos using a variety of materials, drawings, and even real people. This class will create funny, engaging short videos using student actors, props and visual tricks in a stop-motion format. Students will brainstorm ideas for skits, make props and act out roles while being photographed. Then they’ll see how the photographs are edited and transformed into short videos that they can share with others. Every student has a hand in contributing ideas for skits, handling props and acting.

Taught by Curious on Hudson Instructor

Curious-On-Hudson offers engaging inquiry-based classes led by professionals in science, technology, engineering and the applied arts.  Our offerings include STEM and STEAM-based enrichment as classes and summer camps.  From out loft space on the banks of the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry, NY, we are able to utilize our unique situation to develop engaging programming that explores the natural and built environment in a creative, hands-on exploratory way.  We offer programs at our location and at off-site locations based upon the needs of the communities we serve.  The key distinguishing factors of our organization is the belief that all children, regardless of background and means, possess a natural enthusiasm to explore and that by pairing highly passionate instructors with interesting and engaging curriculum, we can uncover the authentic interests of each participant in our programs. To learn more visit COH Website.
