Editor’s Note: At Journeys School, all 10th grade students complete a Personal Project as part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. Each student chooses a topic of personal interest, identifies a goal for their learning, researches their topic, creates a product to address their goal, and reflects on the process. Personal Projects are a great opportunity for students to work independently on a subject of personal interest and to make a product to share their learning and reflection with others. During the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting these Personal Projects on the TSS blog. Take a look at our earlier posts on fingerstyle guitar, crocheting hats, cross-country skiing, talking to strangers, touring the Jackson Campus of TSS, and drone photography.
For my project, I learned to animate. I never ended up making anything too spectacular, but I had fun doing it and learned a lot about it. I definitely plan to play around with animation more in the future as well.
