Code Beats is a National Science Foundation-funded project led by Dr. David Shepherd (VCU Engineering, Computer Science) and Dr. Taylor Barnett (VCUarts Music).
Code Beats works to broaden youth participation in computing by teaching students to create authentic-sounding hip-hop beats using fundamental computer programming concepts.
This one-hour program (7pm) features live music performed by Hip Hop Artist Dumi Right and VCUarts Music students, a live coding demonstration, and information about the July 2022 Code Beats summer program for middle school students.
Come early (6:15pm) to enjoy some refreshments and to play with several interactive technology stations, including Virtual and Augmented Reality, industrial robots, and digital music!
Attendees will also receive a promo code for 50% off the cost of the summer program!
