2. SUMMER MULTIMEDIA CAMP FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

This summer, SUL/AIR's Academic Computing Group, in partnership with Cybercamps, is offering a multimedia camp for high school and incoming college students. By participating in this pilot project, Academic Computing plans to improve the quality of its multimedia curriculum for the Stanford community, secure a process for keeping materials current and relevant in an ever-changing technological environment, and generate a revenue stream for cyclical upgrades to multimedia systems and software.

Cybercamps and Apple Computer have developed curriculum for the camp that offers an in depth look at state-of-the-art computer applications. Workshops will explore the topics of digital video, multimedia, Web page development, and presentations. The one-week sessions are designed to give high school students and incoming college freshman a head start on the skills and tools it takes to be at the top of their class and ultimately the workforce in today’s technology-driven world.

Apple Computer is the Platinum Sponsor of the program, providing of full scholarships for underprivileged students and student-teacher teams. Classes will be taught on Apple IMac and G4 computers. Apple is providing Canon Digital video cameras and copies of Final Cut Pro. Other companies, including Adobe, Macromedia, Microsoft, and Terran Interactive, are providing software for use at the camp.

5. TITLES TO MAKE YOU SMILE: SERIOUS BUSINESS? PART 1

These titles were found in a Stanford Bookstore display designated "Silly Titles ... Serious Business!" Normally, items appearing here reflect the compiler's notions of the humorous, wry, ironic or unusual, but in this case credit goes to the bookstore--I just happened to agree. As always, they should not be construed as reflecting any other opinion or judgment, nor the editorial opinion of SUL/AIR News.
