Duh! I told ya so!

After school programs help students achieve better health, higher grades, and more motivation. I told you. But don’t take my word for it read the article from a Harvard publication.

Does Participation in After School
Programs Make a Difference?

The short answer is yes. (A longer answer follows in the section
below.) A decade of research and evaluation studies, as
well as large-scale, rigorously conducted syntheses looking
across many research and evaluation studies, confirms that
children and youth who participate in after school programs
can reap a host of positive benefits in a number of interrelated
outcome areas—academic, social/emotional, prevention,
and health and wellness. Highlights from seminal studies are
arrayed below under key outcome domains that researchers
have examined.

Nice stop motion.

Bored? Watch this stop motion video. It was made using a combination of stop motion and editing effects. What is stop motion? When we watch movies they are not actually moving we are tricking our eyes with 30 individual pictures per second. That’s alot of pictures. This following video is 3:06 seconds. How many frames are necessary to make this video. How many frames/still pictures per second?How may seconds in a minute? Be the first to comment with the correct answer and win a dollar from Garza!
