Award-Winning Animation: 5th Grade Rotoscope Animation on iPads that won the STEMIE award — Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Innovative Educator Award.

Dryden art teacher Tricia Fuglestad and her class from Arlington Heights Dryden Elementary School recently won a prestigious STEMIE award from McGraw-Hill Education for innovation in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The collaborative work by 100 fifth graders took second place and brings a grant award of $5,000 to Dryden Elementary School, 722 South Dryden Place in Arlington Heights. The combined technology and art project required 335 drawn images by 100 fifth graders on a class using Apple iPads with styluses and team work. The rotoscope animation collaboration was a unique experiment in creativity and cooperation, and learning to envision the big picture compared to the student’s individual piece of the puzzle.

The first place winners, awarded $15,000, involved eighth graders and teacher Lance Schwartz from a school in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. The students worked on a sort of “Pinewood Derby on steroids” project. Every student in the eighth-grade class designed a CO2 powered racecar in Solidworks — a 3D CAD design software. Throughout the design process, students continually made improvements to their design. By utilizing Flow Simulation software within CAD, students were able to calculate the lift, drag, density, and overall weight of their car. Based upon data from the analysis of the flow simulation, students then went back and made changes to the car design to improve its efficiency. When a suitable design was created after numerous revisions, scale templates were printed out and attached to a block of bass wood. The students then used a band saw, drill press, and belt sander to create a functional prototype. The cars were finish sanded, supplied with axles and wheels, and were then ready to race against their classmates on “Race Day.”

Videos were judged by teachers in two rounds and credited by the following …

Round 1
1. Creativity of teaching strategy or approach used in a science, technology, engineering or math lesson. (80%)
2. Clarity of message in video. (10%)
3. Creativity of video presentation. (10%)
