SONIC PI: SOUNDS OF THE CLOUD (morning)
In this one week physical computing intensive, Hackers will be exploring Sonic Pi, an open source programming environment designed for creating new sounds with code in a live coding environment. Using Raspberry Pi, we will be making sounds via typing text to Raspberry Pi, how to loop tunes, understanding MIDI and sound outputs, how to perform with Sonic Pi via live coding, sound effects, and much more. This class teaches Python and physical computing via the Raspberry Pi.
MINECRAFT MODDING (afternoon)
Transform the world of Minecraft by learning how to write programs with the programming language called Python. Python is a great first language for any beginning or experienced programmer. It’s easy to read and write and it’s a powerful enough tool to create real computer programs. By integrating Minecraft with your own Python programs, you can take even more control of Minecraft and unlock even more of your creativity. By combining Python and Minecraft, you’ll be able to see the results of your awesome programs instantly in your Minecraft world. Students will have fun programming in the world of Minecraft.
