Board of Education Honors Elementary Students

Marie Poelker's second-grade class was recognized and presented with certificates by the Board of Education at their meeting on April 16 in Babylon High School's Rowe Hall.
The students, with the assistance of Babylon Elementary School art teacher Patricia Stork and media center librarian Lisa Lindeman, created an eight-minute movie last month using the stop-motion animation technique.
In this film style, the illusion of motion is created when an object is photographed in a single frame and then shot in another frame after being moved slightly. After repeating the process hundreds of times, the objects appear to move fluidly by themselves. According to Stork, over 1,500 photographs were snapped to put together the eight minutes of footage.
