Extended School Program (ESP) students participated in a stop-motion, movie maker class as part of an after school enrichment program.  To create the movie, students built and photographed Lego movie sets.   Still photos were converted to become a stop-motion movie.   Approximately fourteen photographs are needed to capture one second of motion.   Students used patience and hard work to create movies that are approximately thirty seconds in length.

 The awards were presented by a group of MCS notables including Director of Schools, Linda Gilbert, Board Chair Butch Campbell and Barney the Bus.

More than 2,700 students participate in the ESP program at Murfreesboro City Schools.
