Creative Challenge Day at the RoundHouse

What a day!

Starting off with a fairly open brief to the young creatives “create your own light and sound installation”. We started off with their interests in music and sound by creating music and sound effects using Beats with Code plus their music mixer. These are both great ways to play around with sound and code in a simple and accessible format that most students are familiar with. It uses blockly which is a “scratch” like coding environment. It doesn’t need to be installed or plugins just go to the website and start playing.

Next we work on the hardware that we would be using which included MakeyMakeys, Crumble Boards and Microbit. The interactive element of the installation include touch and motion.
