In our animation class, students will design and produce short films. This class will teach students skills in technology and art while providing an opportunity for students to work together on a design team.
Students will learn about storyboarding, frame rate, angles, artistic design, and more as they study professional animators and practice new techniques each week. Students will also take on the roles of animator, cameraman, and director to bring to life their storyboards, sets, and sculptures.
This course is a great outlet for students to express themselves creatively while learning technology skills.
A tablet device and basic art materials like markers, play dough, or clay are required for this class.

It started on time. Activity was okay, just more beginner than anticipated.
1:1 lesson with monotone, unsmiling, autopilot instructor was unbearable Need people who have fun teaching 6/7s Fun-free and impassive, we quit after 45 minutes, I made up an excuse and said my nephew wasn’t feeling well All black background for a 10:30 with a 7y/o comes off intimidating Have parents pre-register for Scratch rather than during class Terms like X and Y coordinates are foreign to 6/7s Breaks every 20mins are ideal for this age group.

Angelica says it was fun and the instructor did a great job helping her do coding better and always talked about what she did right and how to do things better.

Jordan is a great instructor. He is knowledgeable and patient, and is guiding my son through Minecraft Creative mode while teaching him about electricity and circuitry. My son loves the class so much that we are taking it again in two weeks!

RoboFun offers dynamic workshops for children using cutting edge technologies. Children ages 3 – 12 (Pre-K to 6th grade) come to our studio on 102nd Street and Broadway in Manhattan to build and program robots, design and construct video games and make stop-motion animations. Your child will learn about engineering, coding, and creative thinking. Our work is based on children’s innate passion and curiosity and our workshops allow children to become makers and designers. We run creative after-school programs and train teachers in over 100 schools in the New York City area.
