ACCAD is a research center at the Ohio State University where students and faculty explore the possibilities and applications of computer graphics and animation. In this workshop you will get to learn about several of the ways we are exploring new technologies in three hands-on experiences.

In the Animation Workshop you will create 3D computer animation using the same animation tools that are used to make all of your favorite animated feature films. We will create a 3D environment, using simple shapes and then fly around the space with our virtual camera.

In the Motion Capture Workshop you will work with virtual life-size puppets, using your own motions and gestures to bring these puppets to life through real-time animation.

In the Real-time Games and Interaction Workshop you will explore several new real-time games including collaborating on constructing a virtual city of building blocks and organizing strings of DNA in a fun game called Bio Unbound.

The Advanced Computing Center for the Arts & Design (OSU) will host our next event on Saturday, June 27th from
9:45 AM - 12:30 PM. Participants ranging from 5th grade to 12th grade will be split into 3 groups to circulate through the experiences:


Hands-on animation


Motion capture


Human-computer interaction workshops
