NYC public school students between the ages of 13–18 are invited to spend their Thursday afternoons, from 3–6PM, at Eyebeam. Each month will feature a series of free hands-on workshops, starting at 4PM, where students will have the opportunity to work with different open-source software programs as used by artists and technologists.
Thursdays in March: Make your own Wordpress website with Eyebeam Intern, Georg Pedersen. Graphic artist and designer Georg Pedersen will introduce the versatile and free blogging platform, Wordpress to students. Students will learn what makes a good website in terms of content, visual layout, and functionality, and then get to create their own webiste over the course of the month.
NOTE: This is a free program and students are welcome to drop in without RSVP'ing. Computer access is first come first serve. In the case of too many students, students will be invited to team-up and collaborate on shared projects. Students who drop-in cannot be guaranteed a computer and are strongly encouraged to RSVP.
