While I don't think students/campers/kids are any smarter than they were a generation ago, they certainly have access to far better tools than any previous group. I remember making LEGO movies with a VHS camera and "video tape" which was difficult, cumbersome, and frustrating because you couldn't add effects and sounds. I had a good time, but I remember feeling a bit limited in the creation process. While making LEGO movies isn't going to change the world, these sorts of tools act as an example of how normal people can do pretty cool things now.
Take a look at the projects below!
