Louisiana State University, Digital Media Center
Experience a mixture of science and the arts in this one-week camp designed for high schoolers. Supported by the LSU Center for Computation & Technology as part of their Cultural Computing focus, this course incorporates computer programing into a musical performance.
Who: This is a beginner course in programming and music, though basic computer skills are required. Those with prior programming experience will still find many topics to learn and opportunities to apply their newly acquired DSP knowledge in making music. High school students (grades 9-12) are well prepared. Middle School students (grades 6-8) who have a little computer experience will be considered for the program as well. If the student has taken any of the CCT Summer courses they will be well prepared and encouraged to take this course.
Cost: $115 pp. Participants must provide their own transportation and lunches. Bring coins for snack/coke machines. Refrigerator and microwave can be made available if needed. Please mark lunches clearly with students name.
