Multimedia & Rock Camp / Biosensor Research
Educators are turning to unusual ways to get young people interested in school music programs once again. One way is by ‘modernizing’ programs through the use of computers as well as popular music, like rock and roll. University Beat on WUSF TV shows you how USF’s School of Music Education tried this method out with a pair of summer camps that gave middle and high school students the chance to write and perform music, as well as shoot their own music videos.
It’s hard to believe, but ten years ago this past spring, Mark Schreiner filed his first University Beat report for WUSF 89.7. We’re celebrating the occasion by revisiting the very first USF researcher he profiled—Dr. Daniel Lim, a microbiologist whose biosensor technology has shrunk, even as its capabilities and the need for it has grown.
USF Music Education Assistant Professor Clint Randles talks about how the USF Rock & Roll Summer Camp welcomed students of all skill levels.
Clearwater High School senior Alyssa Long, who plays eight different musical instruments, talks about why she’s considering attending USF to study music. Then, USF Music Education Assistant Professor Clint Randles speaks about the strength of the USF School of Music, particularly its Music Education section and how the summer camps fit into it.
MULTIMEDIA & ROCK CAMP: A sample of some of the musical creations on the "Garage Band" computer program from the students in the USF Multimedia Summer camp, starting with Clearwater High School senior Alyssa Long.
BIOSENSOR RESEARCH: Mark Schreiner’s first University Beat report ever, featuring Dr. Daniel Lim, from the week of April 29, 2001.
Dr. Daniel Lim, USF Distinguished University Professor of Microbiology, talks about the PMACS, how it works & some of its applications, what the licensing of such inventions to private companies means to USF, and what he thinks the future will hold for the research and for USF.
