Let your students program robots an create digital music! In this workshops the students will meet Ilaria, who conducts research on communication between humans and robots, and also Georgios who conducts research on sound and music computing.
The students will be divided into small groups and each group will be given a robot. They will learn the basics of robot programming using a block programming language (Scratch). They will learn how to send commands to the robot to make it move around and interact with people and other robots. Different movement commands will also produce different musical sounds, so that the dynamic movement of each group’s robot will produce new melodies depending on how they move with respect to each other. The groups will thus work together to create a small performance that can be recorded at the end of the workshop.
Learning outcomes: What is a robot?; simple robot programming (no prior programming experience required); simple synthetic music generation (no prior musical experience required).
The workshop will be conducted in English.
