Have any of you guys ever used TFs as part of a school project?

    I'm just wondering if you've ever used anything TF related, like figures or cartoon clips, in any school projects. I just made a TF photocomic for my AP Macroeconomics class, for an assignment to make a picture book to teach economics to kids.

    Nope. But then, I wasn't into TFs when I was in school.

    Back when I was in 5th grade, we had to make some 5-minute stop motion films and I ended up using G2 Dreadwing as a character.

    Indeed I have!
    Decided to make a report on the "History of the Transformers brand" for my english-class graduation back in high school. English is obviously my second language.

    Scored me a good' 11 out of 12. Denmark is using some.. special point system to say the least.

    Not me, but I remember a few years back that someone once used a Cybertron Jetfire for a diorama about one of the planes that hit the Pentagon.

    Half the things in English are about Transformers since no else tackles that subject.

    I wrote an informal piece about Optimus just this term for my WR 414 class (Advanced Composition). It was groovy.

    Well once I made this Art Project back in Middle School using Armada Megatron as a Idea.
    (I was a Big Armada Megatron freak back then let me tell ya)

    Also after I graduated I used Transformers as a theme to demonstrate my Adobe Flash Skills.

    Yeah... yeah, I did. We did a "history of a media icon" for English and I dibs'ed Optimus so hard. So hard I think the force of the wake of me pointing my finger cracked the portable.

    I had a speech class during my sophomore year of college, and for our one major speech I did mine on Transformers, and of course had 'visual aids'. Namely my 14 Sharkticons. :lol

    In computer class back at the middle school we had to make a portfolio about anything we liked so I made one on the history of Transformers. Got a decent grade on it, too.

    I wrote a paper about The Princess Bride once, but I think the closest thing to Transformers that I did (school related) was when a "friend" of mine and I brought a bunch of Power Ranger shit to class in grade 3, and somehow spent 15 minutes using this an excuse to talk about modern engineering or something. I "tried" to stay on topic & discuss how the season 1 toys were different than the season 2 ones (being more advanced or whatever), but my "friend" ate up our time talking about Tigerzord's fictional "flying mode" while running around the classroom, essentially making us both look like ******s.

    Ooo, and I think I brought my BW Snapper to school once because we were doing something on turtles, but then I ended up losing one of his arms in the sand at recess & pretty much swore off bringing toys to school after that. Poor guy hah.

    Heh, so did I. Of all the people I know who are fans of the movie, I'm the only one who's read the book as well.

    Another thing I did, which I had forgotten (probably repressed the memory :tongue: ), was when I had to write a short story in 9th grade English. I did mine about TFs, and decided to make it a graphic novel. It was absolutely terrible, and I'm ashamed about ti to this day.

    Back in the early days of G1 I did a picture of Optimus as Santa for a poster competition for advertising the school Christmas fayre. It won. My prize was free entry to the fayre for me and two other people. So basically the prize was £1.50. But the real reward was seeing copies of my artwork all over the school and in several local shops to advertise the event.

    In general though my inclusion of Transformers in as much school stuff as possible got me into trouble. I don't think my teachers understood this weird robot thing. My form teacher eventually had a chat with me about how much I was inserting robots into every piece of schoolwork.
