BATT Podcast 8: Source Code B46
Source Code B46 is a course for K-5 students that helps them transform a written story into an animated movie by software coding. They recently had a screening of films selected as the best in their class by peer review - the best few films from each class was screened at Otronicon and rated by a panel of judges on: statement of problem, plot, animation and creativity. The films were created by students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade in Central Florida during a 16-week course taught one hour at a time. This interview features Kyle C Steele and Sarah Stack, co-founders of the company, as well as a quick comment from fellow judge Bethany Borden of Orlando indie game studio Outhouse Games. We also play the inspirational radio play by vision-impaired third-grader Addison, titled "A Very Hard Project".
