The Mercy iWizards work year round planning activities for potential students and incoming students. The iWizards also work together to make technology more accessible and enjoyable for current students and staff. Every member has a voice and plays a role in each event and idea.
The iCreate event is aimed towards 7th and 8th grade girls who have an interest in using an iPad creatively. Girls may bring their own iPad or borrow one from Mercy. At this event the girls attend two one-hour hands-on workshops.
One team of of iWizards presents some concepts of photo design, allows the students to take photos and then edit them in Photogene. They then make an iMovie using the photos.
The second group is guided through the process of drawing with ArtRage. They then animate their drawings with , Animation Creator HD
Both workshops allow sharing through Air Drop and Apple TV projection. After an hour the groups switch. 21 students attended this year.
