SENSORS, LIGHTS AND ROBOTICS:
Physical Computing with MidiTron

In this course, students will have the opportunity to design small
sensor-based projects using MidiTron, a sensor and robotic interface
device. They will learn the basics of MIDI, electronics and
programming in order to implement their projects. Through guided

INTRO TO MAX:
A Multifaceted, Multimedia Approach

This class will focus on the basics of Max/MSP and is intended for
anyone interested in incorporating Max/MSP into his or her work. No
prior experience with Max/MSP/Jitter or computer programming is
required. The class will feature an overview of digital sound
processing, sampling, basic digital sound synthesis, software
techniques for communicating with external devices, and interfacing
with larger physical and aural environments. The structure of the
class will follow a two-fold approach, aiming to provide a sufficient
level of programming skills while emphasizing concept by
deconstructing representative real word examples.

LIGHTS & BLINKIES:
Working with LEDs & Electroluminescent (EL) Wire

In this class, you will learn how to wire and control LEDs (light
emitting diodes) and EL wire (a flexible lighted wire that looks like
neon). You will learn the correct way to wire and solder multiple
LEDs, solder and chain EL wire, and wire both types of lights to a
simple controller to make them blink.

Instructor: Leif Krinkle
