Our Fall 2017 term starts Saturday September 9, 2017 and ends Friday December 15, 2017

(no classes the week of Thanksgiving). Enroll below.

Remember there are still 2 weeks left in our 2017 summer programs (the weeks of August 14 to 18 and August 21 to 25, 2017). We were thrilled to just be ranked the #1 co-ed 3D summer tech program for kids aged 10 to 18 in all of Massachusetts by Hulafrog in Brookline. We were also just spotlighted on www.bostonvoyager.com as one of the "hidden gems" for kids of Boston . Click on the Camps link above to learn more (be sure to watch our awesome summer program video as well). Due to unprecedented interest in our 3D programs, we will be moving to a new facility on January 1, 2018 (within 2 miles of our current facility). Until we move to our new facility we will only offer our traditional 3D related classes. Please subscribe to our newsletter as we will also offer workshops on Saturday afternoons throughout the fall term. These will be like our camps...cool, fun & informative.

Our fall 2017 class schedules can be found below:

AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES ($595): 3:45 to 5:15 PM GRADE 4 & UP

(includes complimentary early drop off at 3:10 PM and pick up until 5:45 PM)

Teachers: Jennifer T., Aidan L. and one CIT from our summer program for each day of the week.

Click on the day of the week above to enroll your child in our after school program on the respective day.

 

Returning Students: The second year of our after school program. Kids love it! Returning students will continue to develop their 3D skills whether it's 3D design, animation and/or 3D printing. We created some amazing new projects for our summer program that we will use this fall. We maintain the largest 3D printing lab for kids in the state. Returning students this session will also learn how to expert their creations to other systems including Unity for video gaming and our HTV Vive virtual reality systems. This session we will also teach returning students more intermediate concepts like character rigging (to make a 3D character walk or worm crawl) and will use other systems like Adobe After Effects to see how we can change our projects in "post production" so we do not have to re-render a project from scratch.

 

New Students: New students will learn 3D design & animation from scratch. Students are provided a non-commercial, 18 month license to Cinema 4D with literally hundreds to professional 3D design & animation projects. Kids first learn the basics of 3D including the concepts of position, scale and rotation of objects over the X, Y & Z axis'. As the class moves along students learn everything that comes in 3D design & animation including design tools, materials/coloring, lighting and rendering. Later in the session kids also learn intermediate tools like deformers to make their objects do goofy things and physics based tools to emulate wind and gravity.

 

Of course students in all classes can use our 3D printing lab (the largest of its kind for kids in the state). Your child will share a 3D printer with at most one other student. Students also have a little fun each week via our virtual reality labs. Lastly, we expect to (but no promises) introduce another new jaw dropping cool technology to all students (new and returning) in December.

EVENING & WEEKEND CLASSES ($495): AGES NOTED BELOW

Click the respective program above to enroll your child.

 

Beginners 3D: In this class kids learn 3D design & animation from scratch. This class is ideal for complete beginners and for those students who have been through one of our classes or camps in the past. We will start with an overview of 3D including basic concepts as position, scale and rotation over an X, Y & Z axis. Kids learn basic design and animation their very first day and by the second class are making simple animations by themselves. We then move on to other basic 3D techniques like using tools like deformers to make their objects do goofy things. As we go we introduce other tools like how to create a material (whether a simple color or something complex like fur), how we use lights, how to render a project (to create a video that, for example, can be watched and/or uploaded to YouTube). Later in the session students learn more intermediate skills like how to make text dance and emulate rain & wind. Later in the session we will teach kids how to create rigs to make a character walk or a worm crawl. This is a fun 3D. Kids will also do plenty of 3D printing. Towards the end of the session we will show kids how their designs can be used in other systems like Unity (to make a simple video game) and HTV Vive virtual reality.

 

There are no pre-requisites to this class though students should have basic computer literacy skills. For example, they should know how to copy and paste (Word or PC) a file and how to use Google.

 

We offer this beginners class for kids in grades 7 & up on Wednesday evenings and for kids in grades 5 & up on Saturday mornings. The teacher is noted above.

 

Intermediate 3D: This class is designed for students who have been through 2 of our programs (whether 2 classes from last year, 1 class from last year and 1 week at our summer camp and/or 2 weeks of our summer camp). This class will start with a re-introduction to basic 3D everything (design/animation/printing) then quickly move on to more intermediate techniques to add more realism to their projects. This will include extensive use of Cinema 4D tags, the physics tools as well as a gentle, and we mean gentle, introduction into Maxon's coding languages (Xpresso and Python) to make their projects more efficient.

 

Advanced 3D: This class is designed for students who have been through at least 3 of our programs before. We have invested considerable resources into developing this curriculum where students, who have already mastered the basics of 3D design & animation, are introduced into the advanced functionality of today's 3D systems. This class will start, like the others, with a review of the basics of 3D and the more intermediate tools noted above. We will then move quickly into advanced design & animation techniques. We will create complex animations of high render quality from start to finish (kids can render their projects using our render farm). Towards the end of the program kids will develop their own virtual and augmented reality projects. We have invested in the Hololens augmented reality system and will announce another investment in advanced augmented reality shortly.

We, Kids Digital U (aka Newton Animations), are experiencing unprecedented interest in our after school, evening and weekend programs & summer camps. While our animation studio is quite large, state of the art and outfitted with truly cutting edge technologies, we are limited to one space. We are unable to offer two programs/classes at the same time. Hence if you would like to enroll your child/children in one of our programs but cannot make the time/day of the week noted above work for your child's schedule, then please send us an email at info@kidsdigitalu.com with a little detail and we will see what we can do. We are limited in the number of programs we can offer until we secure an additional space. We have identified 2 commercial spaces within 2 miles of our current facility that may solve our problem. We expect to move into one of these new facilities by January 1, 2018 (NOTE: We will most likely keep our current facility for our 2018 summer camps).
