  • Python, Ballet, Mozilla, and Pi - Oh My!

    What do you get when you cross the gig with The Chattanooga Ballet, Python, and a Raspberry Pi? A Music Genie, of course! Thanks to support from the Mozilla Gigabit Fund, Art 120 is bringing in Dan Mailman to teach a special summer program where students will each learn how to code a Raspberry Pi to become reactive to motion in a 3D environment. At the end of the course, all twenty Raspberry Pis will work together, creating an environment that will allow dancers from the Chattanooga Ballet to create music, images, and lights as they dance. The class is open on a first come, first served basis. There is a class fee of $100 and students will own their Raspberry Pi upon completion of the class. Scholarships are available to students based on need.
