YouTube Stars Club (Grades K-8)
December 2 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
Create awesome animations, legendary “let’s plays,” impressive interviews, top-notch tutorials, and much more. This is a self-paced club, as kids will be working on their own projects, but we will run the kids through the basics at the start of each month, or whenever the kids feel like they need it.
After kids learn the basics, they will spend their time planning, storyboarding, scripting, practicing, recording, and editing their animations and videos. Here’s our planned focus for topics:
- Animation: January, April, July, October
- Videos without computers: February, May, August, November
- Videos with computers: March, June, September, December
This club meets Wednesdays, 5:30pm-6:30pm
Important: Some of the videos kids will record might require a Minecraft, Roblox, and/or Fortnite account. We cannot create accounts for your child, so after a child plans a video that includes one of those games, you’ll need to create an account for them, if they don’t already have one. Some accounts do require a purchase with the provider of the game.
Each student needs a USB headset with microphone for this class, starting with the second session they attend. We have been testing this one: https://amzn.to/2XpNYTa. We know that particular headset works with our hardware and software. If you want your child to use a different headset, please make sure it’s USB, and not 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks. Please make sure your child’s headset is clearly labeled with his or her name on it, and bring it to and from class each week when we’re working on game videos.
