Computer Science Field Trip – What is Looking Glass?

Saturday, February 26, 2011 @ 10:30 AM-12:01 PM

Creating Interactive Stories with Looking Glass

Led by Caitlin Kelleher, PhD. Professor Kelleher joined Washington University in St. Louis in 2007 after her postdoctoral fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University. She worked throughout the summer months of 2000 in research and development at Walt Disney Imagineering.

Does your student have an interest in creating interactive, 3D stories on their computer? At this event, we will introduce students to
Looking Glass: a freely available program for creating 3D movies with drag-and-drop programming. Students will learn about setting up a 3D scene, adding characters into that scene, making the characters do
things to form a story, and creating custom character animations. By
the end of the event, students can produce their own YouTube video
from the stories they create.

Open to the first 20 Junior Academy students to RSVP

Registration closed – this event is full – stay tuned for future computer science events!

RSVP by e-mail to peggyn@academyofsciencestl.org

Parking and building instructions will be e-mailed back to attendees.
