Ready, Set, Action!

Ready, Set, Action!


By Sherry Rahmani

Program Outreach Coordinator,

Last month, I had the privilege of accompanying our team to Katherine Smith Elementary for their Box Office Day. Having been a teacher in the past, I was thrilled about the opportunity to spend time with the students and to see our BizMovie stars in action. BizMovie is an innovative, project-based program that gives students an opportunity to explore technology, while learning about business, entrepreneurship and finance through building and running movie production companies. During Box Office Day, the students screen their own animated movies to an audience of students and teachers.

This experience far exceeded my expectations! I was blown away by the amount of creativity and charisma that came across in each presentation. It was heartwarming to see the level of dedication from each student, and I enjoyed watching them take pride in their movies as they explained their production process to the audience. I also could not help but admire the way the Katherine Smith Elementary teachers collaborated together, joining efforts and supporting one another throughout the day. What a phenomenal team! I left the school with a big smile on my face.

Thanks to our generous sponsor, Cisco, and our partner, GoAnimate, for making this incredible experience possible!
