Explore science with art and storytelling
Why Anim8Nature? Why now?
Anim8Nature is a series of documentary animations and activities
that inform children about the facts of life-science in a creative way.
We want to help kids understand their world.
Our mission is to spark curiosity, guide children to explore
science with art and get kids outside.
There is a beautiful poetry in the cycles of life, a rhythm to these cycles that is reassuring and life affirming. The goal of each animation is to reveal patterns in nature and encourage careful observation of the natural world.
Students, teachers and families work with iPads, PC's and traditional art tools to document and animate the natural world. A website gallery celebrates the kids work expanding their understanding of science with art.
We are developing lesson plans for each animation designed to explore science with art and writing while meeting important learning goals and science standards. We want kids to take advantage of the process artists and scientists share in creative problem solving.

Science and art can inspire kids to deepen their understanding
of who we are and our place on Earth.
Anim8Nature is built on facts, research, storytelling,
