Getting kids to believe that what they are learning in school is useful can be difficult. Heck, not all parents are convinced that most school lessons are even useful, but Pixar and the Khan Academy are looking to change that. They have recently launched Pixar in a Box which is a new course designed to teach practical uses for everything kids have been learning in school and applying it creative projects.
The courses offered in the program include animation lessons, but are mostly focused on showing how math can be useful in fields like animation. The course is pretty interesting and teaches how Pixar approached creative problems. Give it a look and tell us what you think of this new program brought in part by the folks who make us cry at every given chance.
