Students of animation and technortic arts accomplished several projects, including animation, 3D printing, and zoetrope. Courses took its usual mode which is the combination of practice and theory, focusing on the practical ability and creative ability. Students were divided into several teams to have brainstorming, to put up with their own thoughts and design. This mode shows the course value completely.
