Teen Tech Time - Video Game Design

Teen Tech Time returns! We’re back from summer break, and we’ll be having monthly programs through November up at the McAuliffe Branch Library. For this one, go from gamer to designer. Video Game Design encompasses storytelling, pixel art, and object-oriented programming, all through a user-friendly, 2D game design platform.

Teen Tech Time: Stop Motion Animation

Teen Tech Time is a new program that will run during the spring and fall of 2017. The Framingham Public Library will be teaming up with Empow Studios to provide a series of STEAM programs focusing on programming, tech design, animation, robotics and more!

With movies like Frozen, Inside Out, and Zootopia, animations have never been more popular. This class takes one form of animation, Stop-Motion Animation, and teaches kids how to create their own animated mini-movies through storyboarding, filming, and post-production. Materials like clay and paper are used to create characters, backgrounds, and props. Teens work in pairs and depict their stories to show setting, rising action, conflict, and resolution. Once characters and backgrounds are made, students use computers, webcams and animation software to bring their stories to life! Movies are available to take home to share with family & friends.

Space is limited, so sign up by filling out the form below, or emailing our teen librarian John Garrigan at
