Sunday, Dec. 8, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
At Columbia Teachers College, NYC
REGISTRATION REQUIRED:< ptnycdec8.eventbrite.com>.
You will get started quickly with the Processing language in a team of colleagues focused on a common subject area. Your team will build a visualization/demonstration of a concept or physical system at an appropriate level of difficulty. We will provide a variety of workable ideas as possible starting points.
WHO SHOULD COME? If you teach a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, or math) subject, you will find this workshop useful. Computer programmers, with or without Processing or teaching experience, are also welcome, as is anyone wishing to get started in programming.
MATERIALS: Bring a computer to which you have administrative access. Before the workshop, follow the instructions in <http://Processing.org/tutorials/gettingstarted/> to download and install Processing. If you need help, please arrive 15 minutes early so we can provide support.
What can you do with the Processing language? Processing is streamlined for design and for creating visual representations. You can draw objects quickly, move them around, have them interact, . . . . In particular, vectors and geometrical figures are easy to represent and manipulate in Processing. Examples are at <Processing.org/examples/>. Or, even better, download and startup Processing on your computer, run some of the programs in File>>Examples, and you’ll be off and running!
