Professor Christiane Gresse von Wangenheim, a distinguished faculty member in the Computer Science department at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), spearheads a 3D animation course as part of the Pode Crer program at the Vilson Groh Institute. Focused on fostering technological empowerment, creativity, and computational action, she leads an innovative program introducing over 80 students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds to the world of 3D Animation.

This initiative provides a hands-on experience in animation, unlocking exciting possibilities for the creativity of talented young minds. Dr. Wangenheim extends the impact by crafting an inclusive online course in Brazilian Portuguese, enabling students aged 14 and up to leverage DeepMotion's AI-powered tools for hands-on animation experience using only a web-browser.

Learn how she introduced animation concepts to students by creating an easy and fun experience utilizing DeepMotion Animate 3D Ai Motion Capture tool.

"I really enjoyed it, I hope to have new experiences like this." - anonymous student

"Students were thrilled to learn about animation with motion capture and to develop an animation with their own movements. The great interest and dedication they exhibited, combined with the remarkable results in such a short span of time, was impressive. As we look ahead to a future teeming with AI-driven advancements, it is imperative that we equip young minds with the tools to thrive."
