High School Summer Program

This is a great opportunity for high school students to take an exciting course in art and computing while they earn college credit through the University of Maryland Terp Young Scholars program.


Immersive Media Design 101 is an introduction to the basic practices, concepts and issues in Immersive Media Design. Conducted as a hybrid studio/lecture course, students will work collaboratively in teams to complete both research and practical projects, including surveying current artists and practice in immersive media; completing studio-based interactive projects that fuse computational media into physical objects; and working in teams to ideate and execute large scale, immersive media works.

Course meets July 8, 2024 - July 26, 2024
MTuWThF from 9:00am - 12:00pm
Format: In-Person (AV Williams 3258)
Section YS41 is restricted to students in Terp Young Scholars
Section 040Y is open to all students at the University of Maryland

Meet the Instructor

Stevens Miller B.A., Physics, Amherst College 1980; M.S., Computer Science, Stevens Institute of Technology 1988; J.D., New York Law School 1992. I am a Navy brat who was born in Japan, and has lived in multiple cities on both coasts of the US. I wrote my first computer program in 1971, when I was thirteen. Machines were a little different then, but programming them really hasn't changed all that much. My bachelor's thesis involved a TTL interface I designed and built to allow a TRS-80 computer to count pulses from a photomultiplier, then run an autocorrelation on them. This became the subject of a short paper in the American Journal of Physics, co-authored by my advisor, Dr. Mark Peterson. Today, my interests are in helping the next generation of programmers use the tools we have today to build their skills faster than I was able to build mine, and in procedural content generation for games and artistic projects.
