In early spring 2017, I was brought in as Senior Design Architect to develop digital products for HMH Tribal Nova’s PDM Design Studio in Montreal. As the animation specialist in the Design Studio, my mandate was to conceptualize and create an animated video series for the Thing Explainer production in Science Dimensions high school, print and digital. The video series is distributed within the digital component for K-12 textbooks in schools across America.
HMH Science Dimensions™ is a brand-new, K–12 science program built specifically to address the Three Dimensions of Science Learning outlined in the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Performance Expectations of NGSS. Built with a digital-first mentality, this program provides an authentic approach to increasing student achievement in science and preparing teachers for engineering instruction.
