CYBERPACK - PROCESSING BASICS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
The Cyberpack project is based on learning how the software Processing works. Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.
The Cyberpack project tries to develop creativity through projects based on digital technologies and plateforms used by young people (sound, image, 3D, web Twitter, Facebook, Kinect, etc.). Cyberpack will also offer assistance to the trainers, teachers and facilitators who will lead those projects.
Going through various experience with an increasing level of difficulty, participants will learn the basics of programming. It will developp their sense of logic but their artistic sense at the same time.
