Some students don't like going to science fairs, thinking they are boring and uninteresting. But one Bay Area teenager is creating excitement by making an animated video to educate students about the fair. His story is What's Right with Tampa Bay.
Kevin Temmer is teaching and inspiring kids through a cartoon. Kevin is a senior in the international baccalaureate program at Land 'O' Lakes High School, and he animated a 15-minute short film to teach middle school students about the science fair.
"We have to do a project that involves using our creative abilities," Kevin explained.
Kevin wanted to show kids that it's cool to take part in the science fair.
"It really feels good knowing that I was able to educate people, while at the same time entertain them," he says.
Kevin said his project was well-received.
"They loved it, they thought it was great. They thought it really got people excited," Kevin said.
Kevin is known as the kind of kid that goes above and beyond. He's a member of the National Honor Society, recipient of the college board AP scholar award, and he's always loved animation.
"I really want to animate. It's my passion. My dream is to create my own animated television series," he says.
And taking a look at all he's done so far, this 18-year-old is on track to be a great success.
