Middle and high school students need to register by June 1 if they want to take Hollow Earth Radio’s August radio play and circuit bending classes.
Registration is $100, but there are some scholarship opportunities.
Details, from Hollow Earth Radio:
Hollow Earth Radio will facilitate Around the Bend, a Circuit Bending Camp on August 6-10th 1-4pm for high school aged youth. Around the Bend Circuit Bending Camp will explore this electronic art by giving youth opportunities to experiment with bending circuits on battery-powered toys to make their own musical instruments. Circuit bending is an electronic art that explores short-circuiting electronic devices, often children’s toys, to create new musical instruments and sound generators. Youth will do hands-on experimentation and will learn about basic components of electronic design, soldering techniques, visual & interface design theories, and tactile manipulation of electronically produced audio. This camp will provide youth with knowledge and experience to venture further into this art-form on their own. The registration fee is $100, and there are a few scholarships available. To register for this camp, email [email protected] by June 1st.
Hollow Earth Radio will facilitate On the Air, a Radio Play Camp on August 13-17th, 9am-12pm for middle school aged youth. On the Air Radio Play Camp will give youth the opportunity to learn about the history of radio drama, making sound effects, writing radio plays and acting out their own creations. Youth will work together in groups to produce their own radio plays that will be broadcast on HER. The registration fee is $100, and there are a few scholarships available. To register for this camp, email [email protected] by June 1st.
Both Camps will take places at Hollow Earth Radio (2018A East Union Street) in the Central District of Seattle!
