The aim of the studio is to encourage Design Thinking by applying STEAM Education concepts to a series of hands-on Animation projects using Open Source software.

"Public celebrations of science, technology and education, such as the Arizona SciTech Festival, are critical to raising student and public awareness of the impact science and technology have on our lives, and to inspire the next generation of scientific leaders." - Arizona's Proclamation for Innovation

What is STEAM?



What is Design Thinking?

As apprentices of animation magic, designers communicate visually using symbols and signs through the medium of sketching, diagrams and technical drawings. The "Eureka Moment" in Design Thinking is the moment where the vision and the nature of the problem come together and an appropriate solution has been captured. It happens through practicing, doing and reflecting upon the personal design process.



What is Open Sourcery?

Spread the Weird Studio uses Linux computers with FREE open source software that will work on your own computer.

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." ~ Dr. Seuss
