Camp for ages 11-14.  Campers will engage in fabrication, prototyping, and programming to design and build original musical instruments.  No prior music, programming, or making skills required. Registration opens May 6. Contact Phyllis Newbill (pnewbill@vt.edu) or Liesl Baum (lmbaum@vt.edu) with questions.  

On July 30, 2012, ICAT studio heads, researchers, and graduate students welcomed nearly thirty middle and high school-aged students to a week long camp designed to harness students’ creativity and encourage them to act on their curiosity. Campers experimented with sensors, circuitry, robotics, rapid prototyping, and the Pd-L2Ork K12 software as they used the design process to create custom musical instruments that responded to motion, sound, and touch sensors.
