      • Goal! Frederick Douglass HS students bring action to World Cup Soccer App


        from Baltimore City Public Schools / Added

        “On the computer screen we have him doing a scissor kick,” says Emmanuel a student at Frederick Douglass High School as he watches a soccer player on a computer screen and in real life. Emmanuel helps a real soccer player from the Baltimore Blast put on a black suit with sensors covering it. The player's movements are then captured and recorded on the computer, simulating the real movements of a soccer player. Game developers from Bully Entertainment are working with Emmanuel and other students in the Interactive Media Production program at the school to produce a video game called Pele, named for the famous Brazilian soccer player. “It’s pretty unheard of to have students in high school working directly with industry professionals to create content for the game,” says Gretchen LeGrand, co-founder of Code in Schools, a program that provides computer programming classes for students after school. The session was recorded in the school’s state of the art, broadcast studio using eight cameras, the suit with sensors and special technology called Motion Capture. “I want to major in robotic engineering so this would be a good platform for me to start on,” says Emmanuel. “It’s the kind of thing you can put on your resume, or college application saying that you did the motion capture for a published game,” says Mike LeGrand, Co-Founder of Code in Schools. ”To see the system go down, and they have to trouble shoot in real time, I think that’s a really important lesson to learn,” says Carlson Bull, Founder of Bully Entertainment. “From this whole experience I’ve learned how to interact with people professionally,” says Emmanuel. The game will be launched as an application on the iTunes store and Google Play. The students will be included in the video game credits.

        • Students shop with City Schools police


          from Baltimore City Public Schools / Added

          “Shop-with-a-cop is good, and I’ve never gotten a hundred dollar gift card before, “ says Jaylen, a student who was happy to pick out toys for the holidays at Wal-Mart. 

 Shop-with-a-cop is an annual event organized by the Baltimore City School Police, during which 71 students from various schools are taken on a shopping spree with school police officers. Students start the day by having breakfast with officers, sponsored this year by the McDonalds Corporation. They also met and took pictures with Ronald McDonald.
 “Christmas is not for getting, it’s for giving and love,” says Deshun a student at Dallas F. Nicholas Sr. Elementary School. 
“It’s a great time for the students and the officers to get together to develop some great positive relationships,” says chief of school police, Marshall T. Goodwin. 

 Students got to ride in police cars with full lights and sirens on their way to the local Wal-Mart, where officers helped them pick out toys and gifts for the holidays.

 Students had fun picking out toys not only for themselves but for their parents and siblings as well. “I want to give to other people and not just get stuff for myself,” says Mekhiyah, a student at Charles Carroll Barrister Elementary School, who picked out gifts for her mother. 

“To see the excitement, the enthusiasm of the kids, is certainly worth the hustle and bustle going through the aisles,” says officer Demetrius Charles.
 “I’ve got six doll babies in one box and I really want to play with them,” says Mekhiyah. 
After shopping, students were brought back to Paul Laurence Dunbar High School to have lunch with the officers. “We love the children and that’s why we do it, we want them to know that the police want to do something good for them,” says officer Tiffany Wiggins.
