Final Project

You may work with a partner or alone on the final project. If you choose to work with a partner, you will need to demonstrate how each partner contributed to the project and the project must be substantial enough to justify the collective effort.

The final project will culminate in a musical performance using an electronic instrument that you have designed, built, and programmed. You can use GarageBand or real instruments to augment the capabilities of the instrument you create.

The project will be graded based on the quality & creativity of the electronic circuitry, software code, instrument case, and the music that you perform. There will be a rubric in the coming weeks.

The performances of the final project will take place May 17th & May 18th during class. You may perform live or film your performance. There is an opportunity for extra credit by participating in the STEAM Showcase on May 10th after school.
