Camp MultiMedia

Camp MultiMedia

Monday, June 20, 2016 - 9:00 am to Friday, June 24, 2016 - 3:00 pm

Camp MultiMedia is a week-long summer camp that offers middle-school-aged campers the opportunity to become creators, and not just consumers, of digital media.For almost a decade, CMM has introduced campers to innovative technology that is already related to their interests as consumers of media. Importantly, while campers acquire notable technological skills (in programming or software use or hardware modification) they are also given instruction to apply aesthetic principles to the artifacts that they design. This year's specializations include: 3-D Modeling and Printing, Video Game Design, Advanced Video Game Design (Minecraft & Raspberry Pi) & Photo and Video for Social Media.

Location: University of Northern Iowa Campus

Fashion & STEM: A Perfect Fit

Fashion & STEM: A Perfect Fit

Monday, June 20, 2016 - 9:00 am to Friday, June 24, 2016 - 4:00 pm

On the first day of camp you will create your own fantasy apparel design and then you will explore the process of bringing designs to life. First, by bringing your design into a computer aided design (CAD) program and then by testing fabrics in the material science testing lab. You will answer the question - Which fabric is the best fit for your design? Design your own repeating pattern and print it on the campus fabric printer. Create a custom hair bow and backpack in the construction lab and finally use full-sized dress forms to build a wearable non-traditional design that you will model at the end of camp runway show and open house.
