Digital Media Arts/STEM - 7th Grade

This yearlong class is for 7th grade students. 

First semester, the middle school video production program will introduce students to the art of digital storytelling - using photos and video!  Students will create short, newsworthy video clips to communicate current events at VRMS.  These clips will be used to produce the Bulldog News "Friday Show."  Additionally, we will explore the world of graphic design using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

Second semester, students will learn the basics of engineering, design, and computer 3D modeling. They will learn how to create digital 3D models that can be printed on a 3D printer.  Students will work with TinkerCad and Inventor which are products of AutoDesk, a software company that makes architecture, engineering, constructing and manufacturing software. See 3D Design and Manufacturing tab for more information.
