ASTRO-Video Production
ACN1000
Students enrolled in this course will work hands-on with Apple iMovie software to learn all about the art of video production. Participants will be taught video shooting techniques, video editing skills, storyboard creation, scriptwriting and character development, and post production. The skills aquired in this program are universal to all video production ventures and will absolutely act as a springboard to any student who is thinking about pursuing a career or higher education in filmmaking or internet content creation. We chose to use the iMovie software because it is extremely accessible outside of the program to most students, and the video editing process on iMovie is applicable to any software they would be exposed to in the future. Students will be able to apply the knowledge they gain throughout this course directly to their own personal artistic endeavours and higher education. More

DownCity Designers: Build Studio
ACN1011
DownCity Designers: Build Studio will teach you how to bring your designs to life and build structures using basic power tools and construction techniques. Students will work together to build an installation designed by students in the Fall Design Studio that improves a public space in Providence like a park, school, or playground. Participants in DownCity Designers will finalize construction documents, prepare the site for construction, and will fabricate and install their project as a permanent contribution to a public space in Providence. This is a great class for anyone interested in architecture, design, construction, or community service. No previous construction skills are necessary because you can learn it all with us! STEM Pathway: In order to fabricate structurally sound amenities, our young designers will engage in complex engineering tasks. They will be asked to conduct extensive site research, including mapping, interviews, and observations, as they define the criteria and constraints of a design problem in order to ensure a successful solution. In order to arrive at their final construction techniques and select appropriate materials and hardware, our students must evaluate competing solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. This process includes defining a set of project criteria based on client interviews and relevant building code, then evaluating how well each small group’s design concept matches those criteria through peer presentations, client reviews, and conversations with a structural engineer. Finally, our students create multiple prototypes to test their design concepts and work with a professional structural engineer who will review their drawings and models and offer feedback on structural integrity. Related Career Fields: Architecture, design, construction, pre-engineering, mathematics Transportation: RIPTA bus passes will be available to students the first day of class to support student travel to and from the ACN class.

Inspired by Nature: Biomimicry with Roger Williams Park Zoo
ACN3002
Animals are amazing! They need our help, but they can help us too. In this class you will explore animals’ incredible adaptations, and how they are inspiring solutions to environmental problems. We will discover that nature has already solved many of the issues we face today. Join us in creating your own solution, inspired by animals. STEM Pathway: The students will be learning and engaging in the design thinking process as it relates to the field of biomimicry. Through their industry project, they will be identifying and researching a real world problem, identifying biological models that inspire solutions to the problem, creating nature inspired designs to solve the problem, developing a prototype, redefining their designs and sharing their designs. Related Career Fields: Biology, zoology, environmental engineering Transportation: RIPTA bus passes will be available to students the first day of class to support student travel to and from the ACN class.

Intro to Music Production: Hip Hop, Pop, Dance and Beyond
ACN1040
Learn the fundamentals of music production. You’ll make hip-hop beats, dance music, or any genre of computer-based music that you can imagine. You will learn the basics of Ableton Live, one of today’s most important pieces of music production software, along with common hardware peripherals such as MIDI keyboards and launch pads. Ableton is increasingly the standard in computer-based music production, used by everyone from pop radio producers, hip-hop beat makers, and electronic dance DJs to rock bands, experimental musicians, and podcasters. Participation in this course could count towards an Arts Pathway endorsement. More

Providence Public Library: Rhode Coders 2.0, Javascript
ACN1012
This course will provide a foundation of web-development programming and coding for students with no or some previous coding experience. Students will learn JavaScript and programming fundamentals using a fun and game-oriented approach. The course will be taught using a face-to-face model enhanced by interactive online content. Students’ final projects will be the creation of a working computer game using JavaScript. STEM Pathway: Throughout the course, youth engage with various tasks and challenges in order to build their knowledge of JavaScript. Youth will learn the architecture of coding and will be provided with tangible real world examples to illustrate the point. Youth are taught the coding language JavaScript, how to design and create a website and evaluate its utility among users, and how to troubleshoot their own coding errors (“find the bug”). As their knowledge and ability grows over the duration of the course, youth create a Tic-Tac-Toe game that demonstrates mastery of the following: the ability to declare and initialize different variable data-types, the ability to use arrays and objects, the ability to construct working functions, the ability to control program flow using If Else and For Loops, and the ability to update the DOM using JavaScript. There are varying levels of difficulty in the coding of the Tic-Tac-Toe games, and youth may progress through the challenges as they build skills. Youth must present their final projects to the public and explain how they incorporated the required components into their projects, any challenges they faced during the process, and how they overcame them. Related Career Fields: Computer science, code developing, informatics Transportation: RIPTA bus passes will be available to students the first day of class to support student travel to and from the ACN class.
