Explore the science of sound, make cool beats, experiment with your own designs, and create instruments in our littleBits Sound & Design course.  This class, focused on principal concepts in electronic music, uses the littleBits Synth Kit to teach kids to make waveforms, FM synthesis, low frequency oscillation, signal processing, and step sequencing. Coupled with Little Bits version of Makey Makey, we will build a series of instrument designs that will inspire them to explore the world of synthesizers, drum machines and set sequencers!

Subject: Coding/Design/APPs
Instructor: Mark DeNardo

Geek Forest is hosting a 3rd session of Pico-8 by popular demand!!! This time we’re going to work on a roguelike, a type of survival game that had its start in the 80s, which then inspired all sorts of games, including minecraft. Kids will code in LUA to create procedural tiles made from the splendid sprite editor, scary/exciting/silly adventure music in the chiptune tracker, and share their challenges with friends and family members alike. Warrior Wizard needs food; it’s survival of the fittest!
