INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY

Cuisine of Ireland
Chef Donald Hutchins
Rich, warm Irish food is the perfect cure for the cold weather. In this workshop, you’ll hear a brief history of Ireland through culinary traditions and indigenous dishes, tasting as you go. On the menu are classics like Lamb Stew, Irish Soda Bread, Fish and Chips, Colcannon Potatoes, and Guinness Brownies, and more. Please wear closed-toe shoes and come hungry to learn.
Intro to Photoshop and Illustrator
This course gives you a run-down of both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to gain familiarity with the interfaces and most commonly-used tools.
Attendees are responsible for bringing their own laptop with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud and Illustrator Creative Cloud already downloaded and running on their device. This class will not assist in installing the programs. If you don’t have a laptop, please come with a notebook to take notes.

MULTIMEDIA TECHNOLOGIES: VIDEO PRODUCTION
The Art of the Overdub
ADR (Automated Dialog Replacement) recording is the process of re-recording dialogue after filming to improve audio quality or reflect changes. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to replace dialogue by understanding the basics of the studio and audio interface. You will work in teams to edit a portion from a video clip, using professional audio recording equipment.
Model Base Design
Participants in this workshop will create a cast part and a finish part inside CREO (Pro Engineer) before applying finishes and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. We will learn to use all driving dimensions while creating the cast part and finish part in the same file. Paperless part design slated for manufacturing and inspection will also be introduced.
