Those involved in CurrentLab are doing great work!

In the summer of 2014, Haley Garvis & Meredith Cosier taught a course called “Constructing Interactive Sound Installations in the Classroom Using Creative Technology” at the Smithsonian. Below are some examples and a GameMaker file (here) for you to create your own Interactive sound installations. You also can learn more about the sound projects at Meredith Cosier’s website artinventionlab.com (here & here) and learn other ways to use the MakeyMakey and physical computing in the “Making & Moving” game module on CurrentLab!
