The Science Museum of Western Virginia and ICAT are collaborating on a unique summer camp workshop!

Led by Dr. Ivica Ico Bukovic from Virginia Tech’s Institute of Creativity, Arts, and Technology, Musical Robots Orchestra is a 4-day maker workshop that will explore the design and creation of musical instruments that are capable of playing by themselves and in consort with other nearby instruments. The workshop will involve ideation, design, creative coding and connecting computers with various sensors and devices designed to produce sound and music. At the end of the workshop the resulting musical robots will have an opportunity to perform together as an orchestra. No prior coding experience is required.  Please note:  Before Care and After Care will not be available for this camp.
