In 2012, I directed Memory Tricks, a project designed to engage girls and young women through animation and technology. Eight 5th grade students from the Jemicy School in Owings Mills, MD, which educates students with dyslexia or other related language-based learning differences, teamed up with eight young women studying animation with me at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Working in student-mentor pairs, the Jemicy and MICA students animated memory tricks that kids can use to make learning fun.
The project was covered in the Baltimore Sun and Baltimore Brew. You can read more about the project on our successful Kickstarter campaign webpage. The Memory Tricks Blog has photos and hand-made thanks to our supporters.
