In partnership with the LA Fund, Google is hosting a special event exploring how science and technology take many forms in our everyday lives, specifically in music. The name of the event is Hacking the Note: How Music and Tech Shape Us. It will be geared towards student Black/Latino boys and girls based in LA as it encourages them to consider a career in computer science (perhaps as it pertains to music!). Music and code intertwine to create magic and we'd like to highlight this in the hopes of normalizing STEAM fields for our youth.
The day will begin with a tech-oriented discussion amongst a panel of esteemed music producers and STEAM advocates. The students will then break into working groups and participate in an exercise that allows them to code their own music and sounds. They'll get to share their creations to the larger group and leave with a broader sense of what computer science entails.
