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.
