Yes, you’ll need your own laptop. Visit https://processing.org/download/ and, if you can download/install/run the Processing software (it's free, though they accept donations), you should be all set. Participants might wish to bring headphones and/or a webcam to work with sound and video. It’s best if participants have admin access to the laptop, but if not, email us and we’ll help you figure out specifically how to set things up.
Throughout the day, our activities range from making "analog" art (with paint, paper, clay, etc) that help us explore artistic methods to playing games that challenge us with puzzles to applying those experiences to code "algorithmic" art to sharing our work over snacks and so on. On the last day, we set up a gallery for others to visit.
Sure. While we will always assume no prior coding experience, we will mix up the activities and projects so that similar coding topics can be explored through different kinds of applications. It'll mean that you have a chance to deepen your understanding of and expand your experience with the tools of coding, though we won't be headed for more advanced topics.
Bring your own lunch. We’ll have access to a microwave and a refrigerator, and we will eat outside (minding the weather of course) on the school’s shaded terrace. Bring snacks, water bottles, and any other provisions you’ll need to keep yourself going too. We'll bring some too.
Please download, print, and complete this form (bring it on the 1st day).
