Dr Ben Swift is a Reimagine Fellow, and his project is creating the c/c/c studio.
The c/c/c studio is an outreach program in creative code: using code to make art, music and other cool things. Students will be part of an interactive learning community where they will be guided by instructors in creating their own new works of code-based art and music.
This program will engage with pre-tertiary level students and address the skills gaps in schools that don’t have specialised teachers or appropriate learning environments.
It will provide a supportive community in which this new generation of people can learn, create, and share. More than that, it will unlock the latent potential in students who never knew their diverse interests (especially in the arts and music) could be used in engineering and computing.
