Technology is changing that annual academic ritual, the science project, as more students abandon poster-board displays in favor of computer presentations.
I didn't see too much evidence of this at the recent Glencoe Elementary Science Fair, but would imagine I would see more of this at a high school event. My son is in second grade at Gelncoe and his display was a bit of a hybrid involving a cardboard display and a laptop. We worked on an animation project that utilized traditional animation techniques such as flip books, and also a digital version using a program called iStopMotion. A very nice stop animation program from Boinx Software.
