Computational Music Theory in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
How does hitting a key on a piano produce air pressure waves? How are these waves interpreted by the ear as music? How can computers generate and understand these musical signals? Come learn the foundations of music from a computational perspective, and experiment to produce your own computer-assisted music compositions!

Making Things Happen On Your Screen in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
You, yes, you, can make interesting things happen on your screen! Specifically, by telling your computer to do it for you. Which, as it happens, is what this course is about: drawing things and responding to input via code. No prior programming experience required! Will culminate in writing a simple game, time permitting. Creativity encouraged.

Build Your Own Fractals! in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
Hey! Do you know about fractals? Do you think they look pretty cool? Would you like to build your own? Have any interest in programming? Want to learn about a language with homoiconicity and a whole lot of parenthesis? Wonder why I'm asking so many questions? You should sign up for this class? Wait, that last one wasn't supposed to be a question; you should sign up for this class!
