All Invited to Community Premiere of Short Works by Deaf & Hard of Hearing Animation Students
Students at the 2010 Summer Academy for Advancing Deaf & Hard of Hearing in Computing, at the University of Washington, will show the results of their work in Animation at the Community Premiere on Friday, August 20, at 7 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM; limit 140 persons). This event will be held in room 125 of the Electrical Engineering Building (EEB), on the UW campus, followed by a dessert social in the adjoining Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering. Also to be shown on this evening will be video highlights of the Summer Academy, describing the students’ progress. This is an academic presentation of Summer Academy students’ achievement in animation, and is not intended for younger audiences.
Ten of the brightest deaf and hard of hearing students from all over the United States are now attending the 9-week Academy, where they are taking classes in computer programming and animation, as well as meeting deaf and hard of hearing role models already working in computing. More information on this program is available at washington.edu/accesscomputing/dhh/academy. This program is part of AccessComputing, a joint project of DO-IT and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, with funding from the National Science Foundation.
